    Hi Jan,

    CLR works great and is biodegradable.

    Hi Jan: You can get a product at the Dollar Tree called Totally Awesome that has Lime and Rust in the name, can't remember it all now, but it works really well. Give that a shot. Good luck

    Lime Away! Spray on, let it sit for a few minutes and wipe it around the glass, rinse off and the deposits disappear!

    I used WD-40 on mine and it took off the calcium and soap film. AND once it's off, clean again with WD-40 and you won't have the build up.

    I had the best luck on both chrome and glass with ordinary baking soda and a 1:1 vinegar and water. Be prepared for fizzing. Spread and pat it on, let set , and while still damp, lightly scrub the glass with it. Rinse off. If needed, wipe with dry cloth.

    You must build a trap and capture a large male rabbit. Squeeze the rabbit gently to remove his urine and put it in a spray bottle.

    Use this spray to remove all the lime. Also removes semen stains, blood stains, evil spirits and demon seeds.

    CLR works great, however, once your shower is clear, use Dove or Ivory soap to shower. It doesn't contain Talc which leaves soap scum. When you finish showering, dry the shower with a microfiber cloth. I haven't had to clean the shower for 15 years since I started using Dove soap and drying the shower with a microfiber cloth.

    Vinegar! It’s cheap, no harmful chemicals, and works great! With a surface like that, I’d soak paper towels in vinegar and stick them to the doors and let them sit for an hour or so. If they won’t stay, hold them in place with Press n Seal. You could also make my favorite bathroom cleaner which is vinegar and dawn. I warm 2 cups of vinegar in the microwave and pour into a spray bottle then add 1/2 cup of dawn. Tip bottle back and forth gently to mix, you don’t want bubbles, just to combine. Spray entire shower, wait 30 minutes or so, scrub lightly, if needed and rinse.
