Here is a quick fix for anyone who has a clogged or slower running shower heads. We are on well water where we live, and that means a lot of build up (and I mean a LOT!) I also do this on the faucets in our sinks and the hand nozzle sprayers as well. I do this a few times a year …and I just did mine, so this is my semi-annual reminder post 😉
All that you need do is fill a sandwich baggie with white vinegar. Place your entire shower head in the bag so it is completely submerged in the water, and secure with a rubber band around the neck of the shower head. Leave it on over night. The vinegar will break down the build up and in the morning your shower head should be running much better!!
I wish I had taken a better “before” photo… but I think that you can see all of the build up and rust in the photo above, and below you will see the result after literally just a wipe down after removing the bag (this is pre-scrubbing):
