Cleaning Shower Heads with Vinegar

The shower heads in our master bath were looking a little grimy.  Hard water build up was causing them to look like this, and regular cleaning wasn’t actually getting them clean.

After some quick research, the same word kept coming up over and over again.  Vinegar!  I placed some vinegar in two separate plastic bags and secured it at the top of each shower head.
I left them there for a few hours, removed the bags of vinegar, and the shower heads were clean!
I decided to just go ahead and do the other 3 shower heads, as well as all of the faucets in the house.  I reused the vinegar bags to do the other shower heads, and simply used an old tooth brush and a cup of vinegar to quickly do all the faucet heads.  Have you ever looked closely at what is lurking up underneath your kitchen sink faucet head?  Needless to say, all of spouts in our house needed a good cleaning, and vinegar did the trick!
