Better Shower Pressure

What is a shower with low water pressure but a standing sponge bath? It may take longer to wash, use up the warm water and leave you with a cold rinse. The culprit may be a clogged showerhead. Here are a couple of easy ways you can remedy that.

  • If your showerhead has rubber around the holes use your fingernail to press and scratch across each individual spigot, breaking up the mineral build-up.
  • Fill a recloseable sandwich bag with white vinegar and pull it up over the showerhead, fastening around the top with a rubber band or string. Let it sit overnight to dissolve mineral buildup, and then gently scrub the spigots with a toothbrush.

It may not be like standing under a waterfall but your pressure should improve.
