Domex Fresh Guard Disinfectant Toilet Cleaner

Ingredients to Keep Handy:

a) Vinegar

b) Baking soda

c) Brush

d) Sealable bag

e) Rubber band

f) Dishwashing liquid

  1. Step 1: Make a Paste

    Mix vinegar and baking soda, 2 tbsp. each in a bowl to make a paste. Make sure you are mixing this in your kitchen sink as these two ingredients when combined, form bubbles. 

  2. Step 2: Apply on the Showerhead

    With a brush, apply this paste on your showerhead. Make sure you cover the entire surface. Wait for 5-10 minutes.

  3. Step 3: Cover with a Sealable Bag

    Fill ¼th of a sealable bag with vinegar and put your showerhead in it. Secure the bag with a rubber band and wait for 1 hour. The paste and vinegar will break down the build-up and make the next cleaning steps easier.

  4. Step 4: Turn on the Water Supply

    Next, turn on the water supply on low to medium pressure for 2-4 minutes. This will release the build-up. Then, remove the sealable bag and toss it in the trash before moving on to the next step.

  5. Step 5: Clean Your Showerhead

    Now make a solution of ½ a tsp. of dishwashing liquid and ½ a cup of warm water. Use a sponge dipped in this solution to clean your showerhead and then wash with plain water.

  6. Step 6: Use a Bathroom Cleaner

    Next, use a bathroom cleaner to thoroughly clean the surface. You can use Cif Bathroom Cleaner that cleans watermarks and soap sediments. Check the pack to understand the correct usage instructions. And always test on a small part to check compatibility.

  7. Step 7: Check the Water Flow

    Now turn your showerhead on full blast to check the water flow. This should have solved the problem. However, if you still find a couple of clogged spots, repeat the process. 

Happy showering!
