And it’s for this reason that many let cleaning the shower head slip their minds. If yours is clogged up, filled with limescale or other unsightly gunk, it’s time for a deep clean.

Luckily, it can become nice and easy with this simple fool-proof (and mould-proof!) hack.

Gather your supplies

  • White vinegar
  • Large zip-lock bag or plastic bag
  • Rubber band or zip ties

What to do

  1. Fill half of the bag with vinegar and place it over the shower head, making sure it’s submerged.
  2. Secure with a rubber band or zip tie and leave overnight.
  3. In the morning, remove the bag and run the shower for a couple of minutes before using. All the gunk that has built up over time will fall away!
