How to Clean a Moen Shower Head
By BRENDAN O'BRIEN
Taking a shower could be hazardous to your health if you do not properly and regularly clean your shower head. According to a study at the University of Colorado at Bolder, your shower head may contain harmful bacteria. But not to worry, with some old-fashion vinegar, elbow grease and about 45 minutes, you can take a shower with peace of mind. Clean a Moen shower head while it is still attached, or remove it before cleaning.
Volume 0%Detached Shower Head
Remove the Moen shower head. This may require pliers or vice grips. If you use tools, place a towel or rag over the shower head to protect it from scratches and dents.
Remove the cover of the shower head, if there is one. The cover may twist or snap off. Do not force it if it seems stuck. This is not a requirement. You can clean the shower head with still attached.
Warm the white vinegar on your stove. Do not boil the vinegar. Gauge how much vinegar you will need by the size of your Moen shower head. You need to fully submerge the shower head in the vinegar.
Pour the warm white vinegar in a bowl or bucket. Place the shower head in the bowl and submerge it in the white vinegar. Let it soak for 15 to 20 minutes.
Clear the holes in the shower head with a paperclip or thin wire. Clear all of the debris from the holes. Dunk and rinse the shower head back in the vinegar.
Rinse the shower head and cover with hot water. Re-install the Moen shower head and cover. Test the shower to make sure you have re-installed it properly.
Attached Shower Head
Fill a plastic bag with warm white vinegar.
Place the bag over the Moen shower head so it is complete submerged in the warm vinegar. Place a rubber band or piece of tape around the stem, securing the bag to the shower head.
Remove after 15 to 20 minutes. Take an old toothbrush and scrub off the mineral deposits and debris. Rinse off the shower head thoroughly with hot water and a wet cloth.

My moen 7200 side sprayer needs to be replaced. How do I disconnect the under the sink hose?
First clean out your cabinets under the sink. Second turn turn the cold water valve off, hot water valve as well.
You should be able to locate the sprayer hose as it will have a weight on it, this helps to pull the sprayer back when you are finished with it. Remove the weight by lifting up on the tab should be on the center of the weight.
Then you should see the hose connection.There you should see a button.Push it in and give it a little tug. The hose should be disconnected. Just follow in reverse order to reinstall.
I hope this is information is helpful. Have a blessed day.
