5 Tips for Cleaning Shower Heads


Clean the Filter

Inside of the shower head there should be a filter screen, which may also be experiencing build-up. Either check the instruction manual or look for your model online to find out if your model has a filter and how to disassemble the shower head. Clean the screen with a brush and water over your kitchen sink -- you don’t need soap and it could damage the filter screen, so just use hot water.
