Cleaning shower heads and softening washing with vinegar
To clean shower heads that have been clogged with mineral deposits, place half a cup of vinegar in a plastic food storage bag and secure the bag to the shower head with a rubber band. Let it stand for two hours then rinse and buff he mixture to a shiny finish. One cup of undiluted white vinegar added to the laundry rinse cycle instead of commercial fabric softener will soften clothes, cut detergent residue and is a plus for family members with sensitive skin.
Clean the shower after you (or someone else) has just had a nice hot shower. The steam loosens the gunk. Rather than using stinky commercial cleaners, try Avon Bubble Bath and an old bath pouf. Or, even better, shower, deep condition your hair, then shower again.
