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

    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.

    Worked great! While I didn't have a shower cap, my shower head is on a hose, so it reached down to the ledge, where I set a 4 cup measuring cup with the solution in it. I let the showerhead soak in the measuring cup, and it came out clean as a whistle! I can't believe how much was clogged and I didn't realize it until it's clean now! Will definatlely use this again! Thanks, breezermom! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

    Not leaving a star rating because I wasn't able to leave it on the whole time stated. It did make my shower smell clean and fresh and took off some the buildup! Thanks so much for posting! Made for I Recommend Tag Game.

    Wow I was so surprised how well this worked! I used it one both of our shower heads and they cleaned up so nicely. We have stainless steel shower heads and it just unclogged those couple of holes that always spray crooked and made them whole thing sparkle! Thanks for sharing a winner of a natural cleaner!
