Quoting Caitlin411:

I rubberband a baggy full of vinegar on it for an hour or so. Then I scrub it with a toothbrush.

 This except I just use a bowl lol.  Mine detaches.

 I never have.  I don't even scrub mine.  I just let it soak a while and wipe it off. Before vinegar I did the same with lime a way.  But of course it is super toxic.

I have seen to use vinegar, but I wondered how to do that. Now I see from the replies here that you put it in a baggy and rubberband it over the shower head. Thanks for the tip!

As far as using vinegar and baking soda, there will be a bubbling action, but the vinegar dissolves hard water scale, so putting baking soda with it will neutralize the action of the vinegar.
