Me too!!! I've gotten some really great ideas from others, here. I like using cleaners made from natural ingredients. Some pretty creative people around here, for sure! I've always said this is the best site on the web

Glad you made it through the storm, PJ! So far vinegar has worked for me but always prepared for the Lime Away if clogging gets worse.

And for shower heads that are stationary, you can pour vinegar or lime away in a plastic bag and secure it around the shower head with a rubber band. Let the head soak in the bag overnight, then brush it clean as Pam did with the detachable head. A lot easier than removing the head to clean it.
That is much easier than removing the shower head.
