    Im sure there has been threads about removing g hard water marks etc from windows before, I couldn't find them but how do people go about removing them? Some I can remove with a scraper but there are a few where the customer waters that are stubborn and won't come off with that or vinegar, hopefully there is a product that removes it easily thanks

    Limescale remover works for me. If not white spirit definitely will

    What type of timescale remover? Cillit bang etc? Just finding something cheaper than rub out as it's over £15 with p+p especially if people have luck with limescale remover like viakal

    a fellow windie gave me some toilet cleaner acid-this works great but is very fumey! i think its hydrochloric or is it hydrofloric acid , its one or the other . wipe on neat stand back cos fumes are incredibly strong ,leave it 30 seconds n wash off
