Clean Shower-head for 2012

Use this ”explosive“ homemade cleaner to blast away all of those hard water deposits that are blocking your showerhead:

Here’s an easy DIY recipe:

-1/3 cup baking soda
-1 cup white vinegar
-1 plastic bag
-1 large bag twisty tie

1. Mix baking soda and vinegar in bag over a sink. Caution: Pour vinegar into bag slowly, there is an “explosive” foaming action that kicks in.

2. Place bag over showerhead. Be sure it is submerged in the baking soda/vinegar solution.
3. Secure with twisty tie.

4. Let the showerhead soak in the solution overnight or for at least 2-3 hours.
5. Wipe off showerhead prior to use.


  1. Such a good post. This is a great idea for the homeowner to keep there shower head clean and water flow on full blast.

  2. Great idea, Thanks for sharing! Those that regularly update plumbing supplies shouldn't have to do this too often!

  3. Not only is this good for shower heads, you can use it to clean lots of kitchen stuff, spray nozels, garden tools and more.

  4. This is nearly the same method we suggest to our customers.

    Love the name by the way "Life is a Flush).

  5. Awesome method, I tried this and the shower looks like new one. Thanks for your tips.
