A shower head cleaning hack was posted by TikTok users @thekali.xanh2594 who have 115.9K followers and 3.5M “likes” on their videos. In it, the pair tried a trick that advises tying a bag of vinegar around a shower head.
The hack suggests leaving this to soak for several hours, or even overnight for a very dirty showerhead. The white vinegar, because of its acidic properties, dissolves away mineral deposits, dirt, grime and grease.
The pair tied a bag of white vinegar around their showerhead. This method is designed to deep clean the shower by drawing dirt and limescale out.
“You just put it on and wait 15 minutes,” one of the men explains, detailing the way the hack works. The other replied: “And that’s what comes out of it? Oh, we’ve got to try that.”
The pair then filmed their responses to the hack, which undoubtedly worked given the residue and debris left in the bag. One explained: “We’re in the shower, and I don’t want to show you want we see.

Looking at the small bits of brown and white matter floating in the vinegar, one remarked: “Ew. What on earth is that? What is this, bacteria? That’s so gross.”
The pair’s followers took to the comment to explain the dirt in the bag. One said: “A lot of it is just calcium deposits, especially if you have hard water.” Another praised the hack, and said: “White vinegar is THE best cleaner.” Another added: “I clean my coffee maker with it. I’ve done it for years.”
