This video shows you how to naturally clean a shower head. Many people are trying to live more green these days. Using natural, biodegradable cleaning products is one of the ways you can live green and help to protect the environment. Unlike chemical cleaners, the ingredients we use all break down naturally in the environment without harming it.
The video above shows how to use a natural product, white vinegar, to clean a shower head that has become dirty and clogged from lime and calcium in the water.
When I lived on the gulf coast of Florida the water had a high content of lime and calcium. But this can happen anywhere you live that has hard water, even using a water softener. This way of cleaning your shower head can help get rid of that buildup from the water and return your shower head to a like-new function.
If you are interested in looking up the safety of the cleaning products you use in your home, a great website for that comes from the Environmental Working Group. Their website is https://www.ewg.org/guides/cleaners/. They score products according to their health risks and break down the ingredients and score them as well. It’s a pretty eye-opening site full of great information.
This is one of the reasons I decided to switch to all-natural cleaning products whenever possible. It’s the reason I decided to bring you this series of articles and videos on natural cleaning products you can make easily at home.
The main key to all these cleaning products I am bringing to you is “easy”. Most of us don’t have time to sit around and make cleaners all day. You have a busy life, and if I can’t make it easy for you to make and clean with these, you’ll just find it easier to pick up something off the store shelf and use it. Unfortunately, those easy solutions almost always come with some health risks.
What could be easier than pouring some vinegar in a bowl and letting it do the work while you do something else? Watch the video above to see my test of using plain white vinegar to clean a shower head of lime and calcium deposits.
And what could be less expensive? I bought a 1/2 gallon (64oz) of white vinegar at my local grocery store for $1.60. A 28oz. Bottle of CLR, which is what most people think of when cleaning things like this, is listed on Amazon at $16.21 at the time of this writing.
I think the test results in the video speak for themselves, and I was able to save considerable money by using a natural product to do the job. Be sure and check out our natural cleaning products checklist for other great natural cleaning products to use around the home.
