Step 4: Cover in vinegar Pour the white vinegar over the parts until they are completely covered. Step 5: Soak Let the bucket or bowl sit for a few hours.

Step 7: Clean holes Clean the holes of the showerhead with a toothpick. Step 8: Reassemble and reattach Put the pieces back together, reattach the showerhead, and run the shower to flush it clear.
