Pour white vinegar in a gallon-sized plastic storage bag. The amount of vinegar that you need will depend on how big your shower head is. You need just enough vinegar to cover the end of the shower head where the water sprays out. You can use any plastic bag, but a storage bag is more likely to be leak-proof. Clean your shower head once a month to keep your water flowing well and to prevent mildew.
Place your shower head in the bag. Make sure that your shower head is submerged in the vinegar. If you need to, remove the bag and add more vinegar to cover the spray area. Tie a large rubber band around the end of the bag. Place your rubber band above the shower head so that the bag stays in place while allowing the shower head to fully soak in the vinegar. If you don’t have a rubber band, you can tie off your bag with anything that will hold it in place.
Remove the bag in the morning. Let your shower head soak in the vinegar overnight. In the morning, pour the vinegar down the drain and throw away or recycle the bag. Run clean water through your shower head. Turn on your shower and make sure that the shower head is spraying at full capacity. Wait a minute before getting in the shower to ensure that the vinegar is fully washed away.
Rinse off the shower door. Use your cup or bucket to wet the shower door. This pre-rinse should also remove any debris. Rinse the door weekly between deep cleanings. Deep clean the shower door once a month. Apply a cleaner. You can use a commercial product, or you can mix a tablespoon (15 milliliters) of white vinegar into a cup (237 milliliters) of baking soda to use as a natural cleaning agent. Coat the shower door in your cleaner. Set a timer for 1 hour. Your cleaner needs time to set. While you wait, you can clean another part of your shower if you’d like.
Wipe away the cleaning agent with a soft cloth. Be careful not to use a brush or wire scrubber on a shower door, which can easily scratch. Choose a soft cloth, such as microfiber, to remove the cleaner and grime. Rinse the door with clean water. Cleanse the door until there is no more cleaning agent. Dry the door with a soft cloth. Use a clean cloth to remove the excess water. This will prevent streaking on your newly clean door.
