How To Easily & Quickly Clean Your Shower Head


Shower heads work as the final filter to prevent dirt and debris coming through the water pipes from making into your shower. For this reason, old or low quality shower heads quickly build up with debris or calcium and need to be cleaned regularly or replaced.

If you live in a region with hard water (water with a high proportion of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium), you need to clean shower heads frequently to prevent them from getting clogged.

Shower heads left uncleaned can even develop some bacteria. A 2018 study found that several strains of bacteria can thrive in shower heads and even lead to certain infections.

If you want to save yourself the trouble of regularly cleaning your shower head, our Shower King does an incredible job filtering and even eliminating many bacteria that make their way into your shower. Get yours here now!

How to clean a shower head

Follow these tips to clean your shower head:

  1. Fill a plastic bag with white vinegar. Be careful not to overfill the bag, as it could overflow when you put the shower head in.
  2. Place the bag over the shower head until the entire fixture is in the vinegar.
  3. Fasten the bag with a piece of string or twist ties wrapped around the neck of the shower head.
  4. Let the shower head soak for several hours. For an especially dirty shower head, leave it overnight. If you have a brass, gold, or nickel-coated shower head, remove it from the vinegar after 30 minutes, as any longer than this could damage the finish. Repeat if needed.
  5. Untie the bag and remove it from the shower head. Tip the bag and let the vinegar run down the shower drain. Run hot water for a minute to flush out any mineral deposits stuck inside the shower head.
  6. Scrub the fixture with an old toothbrush if buildup remains. Focus on the areas around the holes where water comes out. Turn the hot water back on to flush out even more residue. Repeat this process until you no longer see mineral deposits.
  7. Polish the shower head with a soft cloth for a finished look. Buff and dry it to remove water spots and help the shower head look like new.
