If you're like me and own a stunning bathroom, chances are you have a very nice shower, possibly with a large shower head mounted on the wall or ceiling. If you live in a hard water like London, chances are limescale accumulates onto the head and nozzles making it a nightmare to clean. Fear not, as this is our simple step-by-step guide to cleaning and all you need is a large freezer bag, white vinegar and some string or cord.
Most shower heads can be removed by twisting it from the base and then leaving it to soak in a plastic bowl or container for 24 hours in a combination of hot water, vinegar and baking soda.
If this isn't an option for you then complete the following steps:
Use a large sealed bag like a ziploc freezer bag you can get from IKEA, big enough to slip over the shower head, you may have to use a heavy duty carrier bag for larger shower heads.
Take two tablespoons of baking soda or bicarbonate of soda with equal parts of vinegar and water and half fill the plastic bag with the solution.
Slip the bag over the shower head and make sure the entire head is submerged in the solution.
Tie the bag securely using string or cord around the neck of the pipe behind the head. Another option is electrical tape but it can be annoying to remove afterwards.
Leave the shower head to soak overnight or for 24 hours.
Remove bag and switch on your shower to rinse the solution through the shower head. You now have a cleaning shower inside and out!
