Sometimes showerheads spray water unevenly, because their pores have been blocked by minerals. In order for water to flow freely, you need to remove these deposits. To do this, you may need to immerse the spray head in vinegar. This may mean removing the shower head from the shower arm.
If the vinegar does not eliminate mineral deposits, the spray head needs to be removed for more thorough cleaning.
Disconnect the print head. To disconnect the shower head, loosen the nuts on the shower arm. Be careful not to damage the surface of the fixture. Use wrenches instead of pliers. When working, use a rag to cushion the tool.
Rinse the shower. Invert the sprinkler under the faucet and spray a lot of water on the sprinkler. The purpose is to rinse loose debris through the opening connected to the shower arm.
Remove and clean the print head. If you still have mineral deposits, you can scrub your shower head with an old toothbrush and vinegar to remove debris. Use a toothpick or safety pin to poke out other deposits. The parts were then immersed in vinegar overnight to dissolve any remaining sediment. Rinse again.
Tool-free nozzle cleaning
You can use rubber bands and plastic bags to soak the shower head. (Note: This method works best for shower heads made of chrome, stainless steel, or other protected metal surfaces.)
First put a rubber band on the top of the nozzle. You may need to wrap it around the shower arm once or twice so that the plastic bag will hold in place. Then add white vinegar to the plastic bag. Slide the top of the bag under the rubber band to secure the bag to the spray head. Wait an hour, then remove the bag and open the water to rinse. Polish with a soft cloth.
