Remove the Showerhead

First of all, remove the showerhead. you can remove the showerhead by using a wrench or the other tools use to open some things. If you don’t have any tool for opening it, you twist it in the anticlockwise direction.

This direction opens all the things that are in a twisted form. If you try a lot but you could not open the showerhead you can use an old cloth which is like the rug you use in twisting if-then it is not opened you can use a wrench to remove it from the wall.

You should tightly close the bag to remove the mold, dust, or limescale from the showerhead soak it in the vinegar for a time.
