    Would prefer to use vinegar as I would imagine it would be easier at removing limescale from a plastic shower head.

    Do you just pour it neat and leave it to soak over night? How long then?

    A shower engineer said not to use vinegar but to use "Viakal Lime To Shine 500ml". I would prefer to use vinegar because it is more natural and less harmful to skin, environment and also if my son drinks a bottle of vinegar nothing bad would happen to him.

    I can't get into the shower head and scrub off the limescale so I am hoping that soaking it would dissolve the it off.
