HOW TO CLEAN A SHOWER HEAD
You've looked forward to a long, hot shower all day. When you finally get in, turn the knob and brace yourself, you're met with a sad, slow drizzle.
Water running through a shower head for years and years can lead to clogs, mildew and even bacteria growth. If you live in a region with hard water, your shower head is more likely to get clogged with minerals like calcium and magnesium more frequently.
Don't settle for weak water pressure or risk damage to the flex-hose or shower head, when this tends to be an easy fix. You can prevent problems by cleaning the shower head twice a year, to eliminate scale buildup and mineral deposits within the fixture. Areas with particularly hard water may need more frequent treatment. This will return the water flow to its proper pressure.
It's common to clean a clogged shower head by submerging it in a plastic bag filled with white vinegar, but vinegar's corrosive qualities may cause damage to the surface. Even cleaning with baking soda may leave behind more of a mess than you had when you started.
Simple Green Lime Scale Remover contains corrosion inhibitors to help protect your shower head while cleaning. It's specially formulated to effectively dissolve and remove scale, soap scum, water spots and mineral buildup without harsh chemicals.
Before cleaning your shower head, consult the manufacturer's instructions for information specific to the model you own. Protect eyes from splash, spray or drip by wearing glasses or goggles.
You can pour Simple Green Lime Scale Remover into a shallow glass bowl and soak the screen and showerhead for 5-10 minutes before scrubbing. Pour unused fluid down the drain and flush with water, or use it to wipe down faucets, shower door or other areas with soap scum or light scale.
