Question about Grohe Model 28 206 OOO: Ladylux Plus Deluxe Champagne shower head - Chrome
Hello BD Barrington! I would strongly suggest that you NOT attempt to take the shower head apart, as these have several little parts inside them and if you get just one out of place, the whole thing becomes a jigsaw puzzle that will frustrate even the most patient person (been there myself!).
But the good news is that in order to clean it and get any hard water deposits, buildup, gunk, etc. out of it, you only need to soak the whole shower head to get it clean and working like new again.
First I'd recommend getting some CLR (Calcium, Lime, Rust) cleaner, available at most hardware, Home Improvement, Grocery stores, Target, K-Mart, etc. If that isn't available, you can soak it white vinegar.
Get a small plastic container, just slightly larger around than the shower head, and deep enough to completely cover the shower head with liquid.
Put the shower head in the container and fill with the CLR Cleaner and let it sit for about 5 minutes to fully dissolve the gunk (that's a technical term). Remove the shower head and using an old toothbrush, give all the spray nozzles a good scrubbing to dislodge any large deposits. Then let it soak for another 5 minutes and remove, rinse, and re-install on the shower. You should be fine.
If you're using the white vinegar, you'll need to let it soak for at least 2-4 hours, to get all the stuff loosened up, as the white vinegar doesn't work nearly as fast or as well as the CLR cleaner. Do the same thing, scrub with the brush to help dislodge any heavy buildup and re-soak the shower head again. Remove, rinse and re-install.
I think you'll find this is a much better and just as effective way to clean the shower head without the worry of messing up or having the small components inside, come apart and cuase you a reassembly nightmare.
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
