Extreme soap scum

Our bath has really, really bad soap scum. I cannot shift it. It's like bloody glue! You have to scratch it off. I've tried bicarb, vinegar and limescale removers as we are in a very hard water area too. Any ideas? I banned DH from using solid soap when I moved in with him.

The spray-on bathroom cleaners are surprisingly effective. Shaving foam is especially bad for this. You can use a nylon scourer with the spray to speed up removal, but not on plastic which may be scratched. Once clean, spray and a sponge will do it. Rinse and sponge it off taps and other chrome quickly. meanwhile start saving up for a water softener which will make a tremendous improvement.

These will sort it, promise. If you need to, spray on a bit of normal bathroom cleaner, then rub some more.
