Clogged Showerhead

Showerheads can gradually clog up, over time. The cause is usually mineral deposits in the water and they build up in the shower head and reduce the effectiveness of the shower head.

An inexpensive home solution is to take the showerhead off and place it in a pot of vinegar for approximately 6 hours.  Initially heat the vinegar to the boiling point, and then remove from the burner and let the showerhead sit for that time frame.

The acid, which is contained in the vinegar, should eat away at the mineral deposits.  After the showerhead has been allowed to soak for this time, then it should be almost as good as new.
