I have got very stubborn lime scale on my kitchen taps that i want to get rid of. Want something that will work. I've tried general kitchen sprays e.g. CIF kitchen spray, mr muscle (don't like any mr muscle products) and nothing works. Please name me a product that works and doesn't need too much scrubbing.

Fed up of spending money on useless kitchen cleaner products that don't work. I end up with a cupboard full of them because I can't bear to chuck out until I have forced myself to use them up.

Have you tried Viakal?
Also isn't white vinegar supposed to shift limescale?

Cotton wool soaked in vinegar (I usually do it in a plastic bag over the whole tap) - leave on overnight and the limescale will literally fall off in the morning.

When we had a build up of limescale on our bathroom tiles, I ended up using harpic toilet cleaner on them, worked wonders and sparkled once done!

I tried white vinegar a couple of times but not in my kitchen but bathroom and I managed to take the coating of the taps and plug hole....haven't used it since. what do I do to ensure this doesn't happen to kitchen taps/ where am I going wrong?
