Eco-Friendly Ways to Remove Rust from a Shower Head

A shower head made of metal may over time becomed oxidized and look rusty. Removing the rust from the shower to restore it to its previous condition is not only good for the shower head but also for water. When water passes through rusty metal, it can attract minerals and coloring which can stain your bath or shower tray.

Eco-Friendly Cleaning

You do not need to use unsafe chemicals or abrasives to clean your shower head and restore it to a shine. One clean option is to use white vinegar and a mildly abrasive scrubbing pad. Don’t be too harsh when you scrub the metal. You will want it to shine nicely and be sure not to scratch it.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is an eco-friendly acidic form of cleaner. Many people use lemon juice to clean kitchen sinks and faucets. The same treatment can be offered to bathroom attachments and shower heads. Soak the shower head in pure lemon juice and allow it to soak away the rust stains. Seep the shower head in warm clean water to rinse the lemon juice off. Wipe the shower head with a clean damp cloth and dry it with a lint free rag.
