We do not always notice it, but it is not uncommon to see a dirty and scaled shower head in the shower.
Fortunately, there are tips and tricks for quickly cleaning and removing soap and lime stains from the showerhead. Here are some cleaning tips to make the showerhead shine.
White vinegar and shower head
If it’s easy and possible, you can remove the shower head and soak it overnight in white vinegar. White vinegar is very effective in cleaning and descaling the shower head.
Wall-mounted shower head
If you cannot remove the shower head, you can pour vinegar into a large ziplock bag and place the shower head in the opening of the bag. Make sure to secure the bag securely with the showerhead vinegar overnight. Upon awakening, lime and dirt should be dissolved entirely from the pommel.
A toothbrush for small corners
If you just want to remove a few small spots of dirt and lime, you can dip a toothbrush in the vinegar and rub the stains on your shower head.
White vinegar and baking soda
Again white vinegar is the key to this other tip for washing the shower head. Just mix a cup of vinegar with half a cup of baking soda. You mix everything and then just scrub with a brush or a cloth to clean the shower head, quite simply.
Use a toothpick
If the lime blocks the small holes on your shower head, you can use a toothpick to remove the lime. Be careful not to push the lime further into the holes, which can slow the water flow in the shower.
Make the shower head shine
To make the shower head shine, you can use a fabric softener sheet. A simple little trick to make the taps shine in the bathroom.
Cut a lemon in half
For quick cleaning of the shower head and the taps in the bathroom, simply use half a lemon or lemon juice. Rub the half lemon on the pommel to remove the soap stains and to make it shine as before.
**Beware of vinegar
Before letting you go and test all our tips for cleaning a shower head, you have to be careful with the vinegar! The vinegar must not be in contact with porous elements. Avoid contact with ceramic joints, for example, in the shower or even with too porous tiles.
