How Do You Unclog Shower Heads?

It's a common bathroom cleaning issue - a low-flow shower head that isn't designed to be low-flow. Fortunately, unclogging a shower head is easy with our professional cleaning tips.

Simply remove the shower head, and place it into a mixture of vinegar and hot water. This will loosen the calcium and other materials clogging the mechanism and allow you to experience a full force flow once again!

1. Keep a small vacuum near the bathroom and give the floor and any carpets a quick once over every day.

2. Use a small squeegee after your morning shower to slow the development of water marks.

3. Keep some potpourri, or a fresh candle, in the bathroom for a good scent.

4. A simple nylon netting over the drain in the shower or tub can significantly reduce hair clogs.
