How to clean a mira shower head

Updated February 21, 2017

Mira carries an attractive line of shower heads found in many bathrooms. As with any shower head, this is a part of the bathroom that is repeatedly in contact with moisture and humidity, making it a harbour for mould and mildew growth. When the shower head is left uncared for, a thick layer of black residue builds up, making your shower area look unclean and uncared for. A green cleaning solution cleans the Mira shower head, keeping it safe and looking brand new.

Twist the shower head off of the shower unit.

Fill a cleaning bucket with a water and vinegar solution, using 1/2 cup white vinegar per 1 qt. of warm water.

Place the shower head into the bucket, and let it soak for 1 hour.

Remove the shower head from the bucket, and rinse with hot water.

Scrub any leftover residue with a cleaning rag dipped in the vinegar and water solution. Use a toothbrush to scrub in small crevices. The vinegar is a natural cleaning agent that also kills mould and mildew.

Rinse the shower head once more with hot water, and dry with a fresh cleaning cloth.

Tip

When you are unable to or do not have the time to remove the entire shower head, soak a cleaning rag in the vinegar and water solution, and wipe over the shower head to provide a quick cleaning that should suffice for routine cleaning.
