Ecover Limescale Remover
Advantages: Just give it time and limescale will disappear completely
Disadvantages: Smell isn't great
My Mum pointed out that I had lime scale deposits around the taps in our downstairs toilet. I had thought the plumber that put the taps in had just made a really bad job of the finish and been a bit liberal with some kind of grout product. Luckily the appearance of this lime scale was short-lived due to my use of Ecover limescale remover.
This product clearly remains effective for a very long time as I have had this bottle for several years. I located it at the back of the under sink cupboard and took it to the offending taps. There I twisted the nozzle on the fully recyclable trigger spray to 'on' and pulled the trigger. The clear spray landed on the taps and turned to a frothy foam. I left it for a good while. In fact I forgot I had sprayed and only realised when I went to use the toilet and thought 'What's that smell?' the product having a very distinct, slightly-citrusy-but-mainly-industrial-cleaner-typ e-smell. I used a bit of toilet roll to wipe round the taps and lo and behold, that which I had thought was grouting in a weird place had disappeared entirely leaving the taps all shiny in their new nakedness. Brilliant.
I have used it since with similar excellent results although the limescale was not as severe on these occasions.
The bottle is fully recyclable and can be recycled together with the trigger spray. The product itself is fully biodegradable and the label tells you that it is fast to degrade and has a minimal impact on aquatic life.
Although the product is chrome-friendly, if your taps are brass, silver or gold you are out of luck I'm afraid as this product will not be suitable.
Summary: An excellent and eco-friendly limescale remover
