Showerheads are filled with nasty bacteria

  1. Tierno’s recommendation to take a steel brush and a good cleaning solution to wash out a metal showerhead, how do you even get into the water transfer area of a showerhead or from damaging the outside finish? The only parts I can reach are both ends but not the center.

    1. Definitely don’t scrub the outside with a metal brush or the finish will be damaged. If you can remove the showerhead you can soak it in a bleach or CLR. If you can’t remove it you could try hanging a small bucket with a soaking solution inside.
