One time I searched, “safe cleaning products for toddlers” on Pinterest. Ever since that search, Pinterest recommends pins about cleaning tips and tricks using vinegar every time I log on. I’ve always been intrigued by the pins about how to clean a dirty shower head.
We have a beautiful shower head in our master bathroom, but it often looks pink around the holes and the water will shoot in various directions. I’ve sprayed the shower head with a vinegar and Thieves mixture, scrubbed it down, and hoped for the best in the past. Then yesterday morning when I stepped in the shower and realized most of the water was spraying towards the ceiling, I decided I had had enough.
To clean a dirty shower head you need three things: a medium sized ziplock bag, white vinegar, and a hair band/elastic band. If you are short like me, you may need a step stool or a tall friend/husband.
- Fill the ziplock bag halfway with vinegar.
- Place the bag over the shower head so that it is completely submerged in vinegar. If you need to add more/less vinegar, do so at this point.
- Wrap the hair band over the largest part of the shower head twice up to the smallest part.
- Allow your shower head to soak in the vinegar overnight.
- In the morning, turn the shower on and off quickly before removing the bag. Then remove the bag and dispose of it.
- Run your shower for a few minutes before stepping in and viola! No more pink… no more wacky sprays… and only clean water running over your body.
