Vinegar works well however, I am always a firm believer in either CLR cleaner or lime away. Both products work well with this type of clogged nozzles. Both CLR which is what I recommend to use, and lime away can be found at most grocery stores as well as hardware stores in the household cleaning sections.

I bought CLR as you recommended and soaked the nozzle again overnight and the nozzle is now working. Thank you.
