My shower head is covered in a hard substance and is blocking some of the holes. What is it, and more importantly, how do I get it off?

It’s mineral deposits, and you can get it off with vinegar or CLR. If your shower head detaches, just soak it for a few hours. If not, saturate a paper towel with whatever cleaner you’re using, put it in a plastic sandwich or storage bag, arrange the bag so the paper towel covers the affected part of the showerhead, and use a rubber band to keep it in place.
