When I think of bathroom buildup, I think of grout first, and all the ick that accumulates in between the tiles. Tackling those lines is a major chore, requiring a ton of elbow grease and most likely a stiff brush. Turns out there’s a second spot that also gets gross, but, in this case, couldn’t be easier to clean. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how painless this particular weekend project will be — there’s no scrubbing required!
This Weekend’s Assignment: Take care of the crusty deposits on your showerhead, either by cleaning the one you have, or swapping it out for a new one.
Clean Your Showerhead: If you’ve never cleaned your showerhead, know that it’s not a hard task. You just need a few household items you probably already have on hand. And here’s the best part: no scrubbing required.
Or, Replace It: If your existing showerhead has rust and buildup and beyond saving, head to the hardware store to pick up a replacement. They’re inexpensive enough, even for renters, and this project takes no time at all.
Remember, as with all of our Weekend Projects, just do what you have the time and energy to do. This is a marathon, not a sprint!
