If you can remove your shower head, place it in a pail or in the kitchen sink and soak it in a cup of white vinegar and enough hot water to completely cover the face plate.
Let it soak for a few hours or over night. The vinegar will dissolve the scaly build-up and then you can finish it off by brushing it with an old toothbrush.
The hot water does not have to be boiling hot. Just run some tap water until it gets hot to the touch. Cold water will work as well but I think the heat helps make the scale softer.
For shower heads that are not removable you can accomplish the same thing by hanging a plastic bag over the shower head and filling it with the hot vinegar solution.
Make sure you secure the bag well using tape or a strong rubber band so it will not fall off prematurely.
This same process can be used to clean the scale out of electric irons or tea kettles.
In fact anything that is coated with water scale can be effectively cleaned using a solution of water and vinegar.
The nice thing about using this product is there is no concern about toxic fumes or dangerous chemical residual and the acidity of the vinegar is not strong enough to do any damage to your skin or the metal.
A solution of vinegar and water will even effectively clean your jewellery.
Try this yourself and I assure you will be very pleased with the results you get.
