Combine equal amounts of white vinegar and hot water in the plastic bag. Attack it to your showerhead maybe with a rubber band. Let it sit there overnight. In the morning remove the bag and your showerhead should just work as it used to. Additionally, if you want your showerhead to shine as well, scrub with a brush after removing the attached solution. A quick fix right!
