descaling disaster

(7 Posts)

Hi, tried to clean the bath with descaler but now left with marks even worse than before... seems to have scaled the bath rather than cleaned it.

Any idea what I could use to get the descaler off???

Try white vinegar! Also is an excellent descaler itself. I use it in my kettle, on taps and to clean a lot of stuff too.

if it is a metal bath with emaille coating I*m afraid you have ruined it. you can*t use proper descaler on emaille, just mild cream cleaner and elbow grease...

I think you can get enamel baths re-enamelled? But probably not much confort, sorry sad

Yes, you can get them re-enamelled (have just been researching). There's also a DIY kit. Am so not DIY-capablefriendly though. Might just have to live with it.
