Clogged Showerhead

Over time showerheads can gradually clog up. Often times the case are mineral deposits that can build up, thus slowly the water output.

A great home solution is to remove the showerhead, place it in a pot and cover it entirely with vinegar.  Heats the vinegar until it almost reaches the boiling point, and then remove the pot from the heat.  Allow the showerhead to sit in the vinegar for a minimum of 6 hours.

What will happen is the acid in the vinegar will eat away the deposits.  After this time rinse the showerhead and put back.  It should be unclogged and ready to go again.
