If you use your shower head on a regular basis, the hard water that runs through it will leave deposits in the channel that it runs. Over a period of time, the channels slowly become blocked by the hard water stains that build up on the inside. When this occurs, you will see a slower movement of water coming through or some of the holes may be blocked.

Below we offer you an easy way to melt away the water stains in your shower head. And challenge the rust that may build up on your stainless steel.

Get a small bag- big enough to fit over the shower head. Pour some vinegar in the bag to about 3/4 way. Tie the bag onto the showerhead letting the main part of the head be emersed in the vinegar. Let it stay overnight. Then remove the bag and turn on the shower. It should work as good as new!

Apply some ketchup to the areas on the surfaces that have rust using a toothbrush, and let it stay on it overnight also. In the morning, scrub off the ketchup with dish soap and water.

The rust can be removed from the stainless steel and the tiles using this method. It is not a guarantee to work on all surfaces affected by rust.

Most ketchup on the market is made with both citric acid and vinegar which contain acetic acid. Both will work to break down the rust on certain surfaces.
