Helpful Hints from joeeze: How to clean your shower head while you sleep

Screen Shot 2012-08-05 at 10.54.17 PM

Constant readers know well that I'm all about doing more with less, especially when it comes to effort.

No, I haven't tried the vinegar trick detailed above — but I might.

In the meantime, no one's stopping you for giving it a whirl.

"Baggy" — or "Baggie?"

Somehow the word has fallen by the wayside except in Jamaica, where it's everyday parlance for underpants.

This is one of those daft "hints" like steaming wrinkles out by hanging clothing in the bathroom while you shower(never works). This is faster and cleaner with a wrench and a bowl of vinegar than trying to hoist a leaky Baggie (you won't discover that until it's pouring on you) and getting it tied properly so that it stays overnight.

Not "baggy". Not "baggie". Bag. Plastic bag if you want to be specific.

I do this with diluted (50:50) chlorine bleach overnight; works great.

Baggy is an adjective.

Baggie (note the capital letter) is a proper noun, and both the collective plural Baggies and the singular unit name Baggie are registered trademarks of Pactive Corporation.

Unlike Kleenex, Pactive isn't nearly as active in protecting its trademark against usurpers.

Geez, I'm full of useless information. :-)

Tried this. Didn't work. Actually had to engage in manual labor. Oh, the humanity.
