Shower cleaning DIY eco friendly and green

It’s spring cleaning time, so I figured I would send you all some eco-friendly inspiration for cleaning your own homes, starting with how to easily clean your showerhead!


My showerhead looked like this:

… and I don’t like spending a lot of time scrubbing.



What to do??


  • Get some white distilled vinegar.  

    You can buy large containers of it for under $2. Seriously, get the large one.  I will convince you that there are plenty of awesome uses for it!

  • Put some of it in a baggie.

    You’ll need just enough to cover your showerhead (and a baggie large enough to cover your showerhead).  I used maybe 2 cups?

  • Place the baggie over the showerhead.

    I used a rubber band to secure it.

  • Wait 1 hour

    I don’t recommend doing this in the morning when people are about to take showers

  • Remove the baggie.

  • Wipe the showerhead with a cloth or sponge.

  • Voilà!  It’s clean!

Also, when I removed the baggie of vinegar, I then used the vinegar for other cleaning duties (e.g. cleaning dish scrubbing tools, A/C drain, and garbage disposal).  Also, vinegar is good for your drain, and just fine for the environment, so no worries about dumping it!



And afterwards

- my showerhead looked shiny and new!
