Is your shower head clogged? Is it slow running or at a lower pressure than normal? Try this simple and easy fix for most shower head problems! Be careful not to get the vinegar in your stings!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a turkey baster with white vinegar and lemon juice.
  2. Grab an old shower cap and fill the shower cap with the vinegar from the turkey baster.
  3. Secure the cap to the shower head, keeping the shower head immersed in the vinegar, with rubber bands.
  4. Leave it on for 24 hours, then remove the vinegar and plastic shower cap and scrub the showerhead with an old toothbrush.

I just use plain white vinegar and it works great. Not sure what the lemon juice is for. It also works on faucets and the vegetable sprayer in the kitchen sink.

This works so well. I used a plastic bag and rubber bands, since I didn't have a shower cap.
