How Removing your Stuck Shower Head?

Use a wrench or pair of pliers to remove the shower head. Often, you can rely on simple tools, such as wrenches or pliers, to loosen your stuck shower head. When one method does not work, try the next method. Cover the fixture’s connector or plumbing nut with an old cloth to protect the metal. Grip the connector or nut with a wrench or pair of locking pliers.

First, turn the wrench or pliers clockwise in an attempt to break the rust or mineral deposits. Turn the tool counterclockwise to loosen and remove the shower head. Apply a rust, calcium, and lime remover to the shower head. Treating the rust and mineral build-up with chemicals may loosen the connector or nut.

Read the instructions on the bottle of rust, calcium, and lime remover. Apply the product as instructed. Allow the product to sit for the allotted time. Scrub off the product with a wire brush, removing the rust, calcium, and lime in the process. Wipe the shower head and shower arm clean.

Apply penetrating lubricant to the shower head. Penetrating lubricants, like WD-40 and Liquid Wrench, can work wonders on a stuck shower head. Apply one coat of the penetrating lubricant to the connector or nut. Allow it to sit for two hours. Apply a second coat of the penetrating lubricant to the connector or nut. Allow it to sit for two hours.

Cover the connector or nut with a cloth. Grip the fixture or nut with a wrench and attempt to loosen the shower head. Consult your kit’s directions for the exact drying time for your specific finish. If you don’t let the finish dry long enough, you could end up with streaks and bubbles in the new coating and you will need to start the process over again.

How to Deep Cleaning a Toilet?

Put on clean gloves and a plastic apron. Use a dedicated pair of waterproof rubber gloves to clean your toilet. A plastic apron will protect your clothing. Toilets can be a haven for bacteria – you’ll want to keep your hands as clean and dry as possible when you’re cleaning yours. Keep these gloves separate from your other gloves. It’s handy to buy your toilet gloves in a different color than your other rubber gloves – you don’t accidentally want to mistake them for your dish-washing gloves.

Wipe down the toilet with a damp sponge. It can be handy to give your toilet an initial once-over with hot water. While you’re cleaning the rest of the toilet, this will sink in, loosening up dirt and grime and making your later efforts easier. Moisten a sponge with hot water and wipe around the tank, lid, seat, base, and exterior of the bowl. Often, this will be enough to completely remove dirt without the need for special cleaning products.

Apply toilet cleaner to the inside of the bowl. Specially-formulated toilet cleaners can help you eliminate stains, rings, and mineral deposits in your toilet. Squirt or dab cleaner on the inside of the rim of the bowl, allowing it to drip down the sides of the bowl and into the water.

It’s important to apply cleaner to the inside of the bowl’s rim – this area is often ignored, which can lead to gross brown mineral buildup along the rim. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for the cleaner you use. Many cleaners work best if you allow them to soak in the bowl before proceeding. If so, take a short break before the next step.

Scrub the bowl with a toilet brush. Using a firm-bristled toilet brush, scrub the entire bowl thoroughly, paying special attention to any mineral stains that may accumulate along the water level and at the back of the bowl.
