Do you have hard water? If so, you might notice a white build-up on your shower head. Most people assume that a shower head doesn’t need to be cleaned—after all, nothing touches it but running water.

However, not only does the build-up look bad, but the lime scale and mineral deposits from the water can clog your shower head and reduce the flow of water.

The solution is to regularly clean your shower head. It will look better, last longer and you’ll have better water pressure. You might be thinking that you don’t possibly have time to clean one more thing in your home, but the good news is that it’s cheap, easy and quick. You may already have the supplies in your kitchen cupboard—all you need is vinegar and baking soda.

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. 🔨 They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to ⭐ WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans 🤗

Rae is correct. Vinegar and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) neutralize eachother to form carbon dioxide, water, and sodium acetate. Sodium acetate is good for making salt and vinegar flavored chips, but not very good for cleaning mineral deposits. For that you need an acid, like plain vinegar, lemon juice (citric acid) sour salt (citric acid), or glycolic acid. And if it is really bad, and not on aluminum, stone, or unglazed tile, toilet bowl cleaner (hydrochloric acid) works a treat!
