Clean shower head from mineral deposits

Remove the shower head either by unscrewing it with your hand, or use a pair of channel locks to grip the shower head.  Soak the shower head is some white vinegar and brush off the lime and other deposits.

You might also need a toothpick to get out any deposits that are in the small holes where the water comes out.  Here is a great video from Howcast that quickly shows you how to do it.
