We have dreadfully hard water here in West Michigan. That leads to the dreaded lime scale build-up and unusable shower heads. Cleaners like CLR and KABOOM! require using rubber gloves because the product is so strong. Forget that! First, make sure the shower head is completely dry. Water will deactivate the reaction you want.
Thanks loads for this tip. I copied and pasted it and then printed it out so that I can remember to do this, as I have extremely hard water, also. I live in South Georgia, but I guess hard water is found everywhere, isn't it? Thanks for sharing with us and God bless you.
Leave out the baking soda when you are dissolving limescale with vinegar. It just neutralizes the vinegar, which wastes it. The reason you are still able to clean with the combo is because you have not neutralized it all.
