Sounds like the best answer if the toilet will flush.
Draining the hot water heater through the pipes (using low point drains) during winterization will sweep crud from the bottom of the tank into the cold water line located just above the bottom of the hot water tank. When you re-pressurize (with antifreeze or water), that crude gets into the cold and hot water pipes and can block the faucet screens. The toilet flush valve has a much larger hole that can allow those nodule bits out (though it can still plug if a large nodule gets there).
Prevention is to close the hot water tank winterization valves anytime you need to drain the hot water tank. Use the plug on the outside to do the actual draining so you can flush out the junk to the outside.
