Hello guys,
I need help cleaning my glass.
I already used Vinegar and window cleaner but with no effects.
Do you know any way to remove these white residues from my extra clear glass?

I normally use white vinegar and have to go over an area several times but failing that I would try a new stanley or razor blade and carefully remove it whilst wet

If you have access to a clean spray bottle and some RO water and a sponge, spray wipe, spray wipe until it has gone.

Hi @Dddp,

Great stuff what I'm using to clean glass of algae and lime is Seachem AquaVitro pad. Non toxic and really doing good job. It's flat square scraper size about 5x5 inch and about 3-4mm thick. Nothing is scratched unless sand will be catched on the surface. I think much better than razor.

I have bought today 2 cleaning products made for calcium removal. Will try them today and will let you know. I have also bought citric acid.

I have used:

1. Vinegar
2. Citric Acid
3. UHU calcium removal for bathroom glassware
4. Bleach

Doesnt seem to be any difference. I have used a sponge for the cleaning.

If you can soak the tank in dilute acid or dilute bleach for a few hours that should help. Make sure you have a safe way to dispose of 100s of litres of these chemicals however.

Otherwise a metal dish scourer might work. Don't use it in combination with bleach but should think it would be ok with vinegar. Also make sure it doesn't scratch the tank.

Another vote for Kilrock from the South Coast although I am going to try the Zep recommended by Lazybones51 - it's a war down here!

I have just cleaned a nice set of 3 stainless steel pans (Ikea) my wife got from local Facebay for £5. All badly scaled, as we have very hard water in our area. Kilrock, shifted most scale, but a wipe round with 10% hyrdochloric acid and pans look like new.

If you can get hydrochloric acid and soak that would 100% work. Used that to remove coralline algae at work. Best use a respiratory mask and goggles though.
