    Put some vinegar in a plastic bag and tie it or use a rubber band to wrap the plastic band around the top of the shower so that the head is in the vinegar. Let it sit 15-20 mins, then run the water. It should be all cleared up and run good. If it's still a little plugged up, do it again. The vinegar breaks down the hard water deposits so your shower will work great again..


  • we take ours off and let soak in straight white vinegar for several hours, usually works great. IF you can't remove yours, try pouring some vinegar in a plastic bag they tie the bag over the nozzle so the head is submersed in the bag.

    Find a plastic bag that you can fill with vinegar and tie around the shower head. Let soak, the longer, the better, at least 30 minutes. Should dislodge all the calcium deposits. Good luck!

    If you can unscrew the shower head, put it a bucket covering it with vinegar. Let it soak for a few hours. then scrub with a stiff brush and rinse well. Should be good to go!!

    Take off shower head and soak in clear vinegar overnight or until clog is gone. If you can't get shower head off easily just put vinegar in a ziplock bag and tie it up around the stem with something so that entire shower head is immersed in vinegar.

    Fill a Ziploc bag with vinegar and let it soak overnight. (tie the ziplock on with a rubber band if you don't want to remove.)
