Unclogging a Showerhead: Easy Peasy

An unclogged showerhead

Now that's real water pressure.

Does it feel like your shower’s water pressure has gotten weaker? Chances are, your showerhead is clogged. Over time, hard water mineral deposits can reduce a shower’s water pressure. Instead of replacing the showerhead all together, try unclogging it with white vinegar. Follow these steps:

  1. Remove the showerhead and scrape it clean with a paper clip or sharp, narrow tool.
  2. Soak the showerhead in vinegar overnight.
  3. After soaking, scrub clean with a toothbrush.
  4. Rinse showerhead thoroughly with water and re-attach.

Things you’ll need:  Clogged showerhead,  white vinegar, toothbrush
