Clean shower heads, sink faucets and sprinkler heads of mineral deposits
When mineral deposits build up on your shower head, sink faucet or sprinkler heads, you may need to perform some repairs. These mineral deposits can be a nuisance, especially if your water is hard. You can remove the deposits from your shower head by hand or with a special cleaning solution.
Mineral deposits are formed when your water has high amounts of calcium and iron. This buildup can prevent your water from delivering full blast. Your shower head can also become clogged, reducing the amount of water you can get out.
Using a soft bristled brush can help you to scrub off the mineral deposits. It can also be helpful to use a toothpick. If your shower head is too hard to clean, you can soak it in vinegar for a day or so.
Another way to remove mineral deposits is to wrap a plastic bag around the faucet. Once the bag is over the faucet, you can remove the mineral deposits inside and outside of the faucet. The bag should be tied down with a rubber band.
Aside from mineral deposits, your shower head can also accumulate soap scum. Soap scum can be unpleasant to look at and unattractive to other people. To clean your shower head, you can use lemon juice, white vinegar or other cleaners.
In order to ensure the safety of your family, you must choose a safe cleaning solution. Some cleaners contain harsh chemicals that could be dangerous if inhaled or absorbed by the skin. Fortunately, you can easily make a safe, all-natural solution with vinegar.
After cleaning the shower head, you can rinse it with hot water to flush away the remaining cleaning solution. Use a soft cloth to dry it. Rinsing the shower head will also prevent the mineral deposits from returning.
Mineral deposits can often form on glass and ceramic surfaces. There are many ways to clean the shower head, faucet or sprinkler heads of these deposits. Vinegar, a natural cleaner, can also work as a powerful disinfectant.
While vinegar is effective, it can take a few days to completely dissolve the deposit. For stubborn mineral deposits, a toothbrush can help you to scrub them.
