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?

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. Smile

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.

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.
