Rather than replace your old aerator, soak it in a shallow dish of plain white vinegar after you remove it from the faucet. Vinegar will loosen the mineral build-up and after 15 minutes (or longer), the crud will be left in the dish or it'll be easy to remove w/ an old toothbrush. Rather than remove an old shower head, put some plain white vinegar into a plastic sandwich baggie and put it on the shower head so the holes rest in the vinegar. Tie the baggie on behind the shower head w/ a rubber band & leave it for abt an hour. Remove baggie & turn on shower; voila! the crud will fall away and you'll enjoy better water flow for bathing.
