Unplugging the shower with vinegar
That’s what you read, vinegar, in addition to all the functions you have both inside the kitchen and for cleaning purposes, can still help unclog your shower. To do this, you will need:

3 – Add a glass of vinegar to the water, mix well and then submerge the spreader, leaving it there for at least one hour;
4 – After that, remove the spreader from the mix and observe which holes are still clogged. Use the brush to solve this problem, but if any holes are still clogged, remember to use the paper clip, the wire or even the toothpick to remove what is stuck there.
5 – With all clean, unclogged holes, screw the spreader back into the shower, turn the household power switch on and enjoy your bath.
