Tie A Bag Of Vinegar Around Your Shower Head For Easy, No-Effort Cleaning

Your shower head is prone to buildup of all sorts of nasty stuff, and it can be a pain to clean if you do it the hard way. As Redditor IT_Serpent points out, you can cure your shower head of its grimy blockage with a bag of vinegar. All you have to do is fill the bag, place it around the shower head so it's submerged in the liquid, and tie it to the neck with a twist tie (or anything else, really).

The picture above shows how this works. It's a pretty simple trick to doing an otherwise frustrating job.

To get the built up residue off of your shower head, tie a baggy of vinegar around a shower head. Leave it there over night, and it will clean everything off with no work. [Reddit]


    You know, I never thought about that. I always pull the whole thing apart and soak it in vinegar. Might have to try this!

    Excellent idea- thanks for this post

    Vinegar never works at cleaning anything, I've tried it several times on several different types of things and it never works. Old wives tale

      Agreed. Replace vinegar with CLR for this method and you're onto a winner though!

      I've been doing this for a few months, works great when the water flow gets too weak.

    I've been plotting the removal of my shower head for months because one hole has a hint of scale in it that makes the stream come out at a funny angle and get me in the eye, seemingly no matter where I stand. I'd though of taking the whole head off and putting it in a bucket, but, well, damn doesn't this method just make 100x more sense.
