How To Clean Your Showerhead

If the water stream from your showerhead is not as strong as it once was, it may not be the water pressure. Over time, minerals in hard water (calcium, limescale and rust) build up in the pores of your showerhead and either clog the pore completely or limit the stream of water to a trickle. It’s time to clean your showerhead!  CLR Calcium, Limescale and Rust Remover can dissolve these build up issues, turning the power of your shower back on.

Get Started
Clean Your Showerhead

Before you get started, always use gloves and check if CLR is suitable to be applied on the material you are trying to clean. Test the CLR on an inconspicuous spot first before applying to entire surface.

Step 01

Fill a bucket or container with 1 part CLR Calcium Limescale & Rust Remover to 1 part water.

Step 02

Submerge showerhead into the solution for 2 minutes. Use an old toothbrush or scrubbing brush on the face of the showerhead after it has been soaked to agitate the build up.

Step 03

Rinse the Showerhead thoroughly with cold water.


Stubborn build up and rust stains may require another cleaning with neat CLR. Repeat the process for no more than 2 minutes at a time, until CLR Calcium Limescale & Rust Remover has effectively dissolved the build-up.
