Why Clean Your Showerhead?

Mineral deposits, limescale, and soap scum can accumulate in your showerhead’s nozzles, leading to reduced water pressure and uneven spray patterns. These deposits can also provide a breeding ground for bacteria.

Regular cleaning not only restores water flow but also promotes a hygienic showering environment.


How to Clean a Showerhead Properly and Safely

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies Before you start, gather your cleaning supplies. You’ll need EarthSential All Purpose Cleaner, a plastic bag, a rubber band or twist tie, a soft brush or toothbrush, and a clean cloth.

Step 2: Remove the Showerhead If your showerhead is removable, unscrew it from the pipe. If it’s fixed, you can still clean it without removing it.

Step 3: Prepare the Cleaner Solution Dilute EarthSential All Purpose Cleaner with water as directed on the label. This ensures that the cleaner is safe for use on the showerhead.

Step 4: Soak the Showerhead Fill a plastic bag with the diluted cleaner solution and attach it to the showerhead. Use a rubber band or twist tie to secure the bag in place. Make sure the nozzles are submerged in the solution. Let it soak for about 15-30 minutes to break down mineral deposits.

Step 5: Scrub and Rinse After soaking, remove the bag and gently scrub the nozzles with a soft brush or toothbrush to dislodge any remaining deposits. Rinse the showerhead thoroughly with warm water to remove the cleaner and loosened debris.

Step 6: Wipe Down Wipe the showerhead with a clean cloth to remove any remaining residue and ensure a shiny finish.

Step 7: Reattach the Showerhead If you removed the showerhead, reattach it to the pipe and make sure it’s tightly secured.

Step 8: Regular Maintenance To prevent buildup, make showerhead cleaning a regular part of your cleaning routine. Consider cleaning it every few months, or more often if you notice reduced water flow.
