Keeping Your Faucet And Shower Heads Clean

Master Plumbing Faucet

Did you know lemons and vinegar could play a great role in keeping your shower head free of build up?

When it comes to your faucet and shower heads, cleaning them can be a cumbersome and difficult process. In fact, many homeowners are totally unaware of the most optimal ways to effectively and efficiently clean their faucets and shower heads properly. The reality is, over time, there are so many things that can go awry with the buildup on your faucets and shower heads — that’s exactly why having a proper maintenance and cleaning schedule in place becomes increasingly important. Ultimately, really getting in there and conducting a deep clean of your faucets and shower heads is great — but to reduce the amount of times you’ll need a thorough deep clean, cleaning them regularly can really be a game-changer. Here are some of the key ways to effectively and efficiently keep your faucets and shower heads clean all year long.

Lemons Come In Handy

One of the best ways you can tackle massive buildup on both your faucet or shower head involves the use of a lemon. In fact, hard water buildup can actually be easily removed by a lemon — easy peasy lemon squeezy. The reality is, if there isn’t any vinegar in the house, a lemon is a great alternative when trying to clean water buildup on both faucets and shower heads. Ultimately, using half a lemon to properly clean your hardware — like faucets and shower heads is a great way to remove any water buildup over time.

Using Vinegar To Clean Your Faucet And Shower Heads

As mentioned, another useful kitchen staple that can work wonders when it comes to cleaning your faucets and shower heads includes basic, white vinegar. In fact, if you have vinegar on hand, grab a quart sized bag, a toothbrush, and a rubber band. The reality is, these simple staples are a great way to clean your faucet and shower heads effectively and efficiently. Ultimately, calcium buildups will often find their way to shower heads and faucets alike — the vinegar should remove them but if when you turn the water on there still appears to be a blockage, then simply use a toothpick to really get all the buildup out and remedy the blockage properly.
