How can I clean/unclog the clogged aerator in my kitchen faucet? Is there a home remedy or should I just replace it? Thanks....

Simply unscrew the aerator, take it apart (remember exactly how it goes back together), and clean out the little holes with a toothpick, small stiff wire or large needle.
Sometimes, if the clog is from mineral buildup, you can soak it overnight in vinegar to dissolve it.
If it is badly clogged from rust particles, etc., just get a new one. They're very inexpensive.
Good Luck!
