    I’ve noticed George Farmer uses a Dennerle cleanator but struggling to find this online in the UK. Is there anything similar?

    I pick mine up for peanuts at local garden centre

    have used the Dennerle cleanator and it was good but went back to sponge scourer for convenience when it worn out, still managed to scratch tank with Dennerle cleanator when pest snail got under it

    Top tip - remove snails from glass before scrubbing ;)

    I find that scaper blades are quite good.

    I’ve got a Cleanator and it works very well. I wouldn’t use anything with one of those green pads for cleaning glass, they’re very abrasive. I regularly use the green pads for sanding down wood etc. For stubborn stuff like limescale you can get plastic scraper blades. I bought a pack of the blue ones for not much money on eBay.

    Sponges which are suitable for non stick pans. Used them for years. Never had a problem and they don't scratch glass
