Does it feel like your shower’s water pressure has gotten weaker? Chances are, your showerhead is clogged. Over time, hard water mineral deposits can reduce a shower’s water pressure. Instead of replacing the showerhead all together, try unclogging it with white vinegar. Follow these steps:
- Remove the showerhead and scrape it clean with a paper clip or sharp, narrow tool.
- Soak the showerhead in vinegar overnight.
- After soaking, scrub clean with a toothbrush.
- Rinse showerhead thoroughly with water and re-attach.
