This is a solution for "before" the shaker gets clogged. I always put rice in all of my salt shakers so it absorbs the humidity which causes the shakers to clog. My mother was the one who taught this to me.
A bulletin board pushpin has a nice "handle" to manually unclog salt shaker holes. I keep one on a fridge magnet for easy access!
Was going to say the same as Scottish Yankee but was going to suggest a toothpick, wooden or plastic ;-)
Try letting it soak for a few hours to soften the salt, and then use either a soft tooth brush to scrub the holes (may have to re-soak). Or try using a sewing needles after it has soaked.
