Anyone got any suggestions on how to get limescale/soap marks off the inside of shower doors, tried the usual cleaners even using a pan scrubber, but can't shift them?

Soak them in vinegar leave overnight. Repeat of needs be :)

What sort of Vinegar?

Posted By: scottie

White vinegar. If they are bad you may have to do it a few times. However it does work. Give it a rub in when you do it . Good luck. :)

How big a vessel, and how many litres of vinegar do you need to soak a shower door?

I've been dealing with this problem in the apartment I've just moved into. The girl helping me recommended vinegar, but I actually had good results with Cillit Bang (leaving it on a while and more than one application) around taps and such I used a brand new small sharp scraper too. In fact I've bought 6 new scrapers and am giving them lots of use! I've got sore knuckles this week! White vinegar is a good all round cure all for lots of things. It's great for removing hard to shift smells and occasionally I run a small bottle of it through my washing machine to keep that clean too.

Just last week i used a couple of Lemons from the garden to clean up a sticking toilet cistern that had calcified and remove some limescale deposits from the pipework. Worked very quickly.

Grease off which is sold in all the UK discount shops is good. I used it on my washing machine soap drawer and it lifts it no problem. HTH

Vinegar will remove lime scale because it is actually a mild acid (acetic acid) and limescale is calcium carbonate, which can be dissolved by application of a weak acid (vinegar).

Lidl in the UK sells bottles of limescale remover, maybe the Cyprus shops do. Works very well on soap scum, kettle limescale, shower heads, etc.

Cyprus shops sell a wide range of limescale removing products.
