I have a standard/low price shower head that has gotten stiff/difficult to
Does anyone have suggested lubricants, such as the manufacturer may have
used, that won't wash away the first few uses?
Vaseline works best. Make sure to put lots of it in your ears.
Hopefully that should loosen your brain a bit so you'll loosen your
wallet a bit and spend a few bucks on a good shower head, you tight
Since none of us make these things, it's hard to tell what (if anything) is
used by the mfg to lubricate it. The thing may swivel originally, because
it's clean and polished. Shower heads are cheap - as you say.
If you want to, remove it, spray some WD-40 where you can and give it some
exercise. It should loosen it up. Vaseline may work too, but will not get
inside of it. These things are not made to be taken apart AFAIK.
I don't think the mfg uses anything, but I could be wrong.
I would like to wait for the answer to my question at the top, but for
the sake of time, I'd just move the head around until it moved freely.
That should do it for a few years.
I still take showers occasionally and I have had no desire to move my
shower head ever since I got it right the first time.
