Oxalic acid will do the job

Oxalic acid will do the job no worries if you need to ever do it yourself.
Doesn't affect any substrate but converts iron oxide to a soluble substance.

Wade a mild solution of CLR and water works a treat. Great for cars as well.

If its a brown stain its iron based. If its a white stain its probably calcium.

CLR probably would do. Oxilic acid is designed for removing iron stains or vanadium stains.

Get rid of the bore LOL

Mon, 2009-06-29 21:17

I have seen so many homes ruined by the crap that comes out of those bores. But what else can we do???? Empty the dams? Elbow grease is the only solution I can come up with; and mix a few cemicals in there to assist. So much for the environment.

I did a little research. Try peroxide/ water 50/50

Do a spot test first

I take that back, vineger. Its acidic. Calcium = Alkaline

Oh I give up. Ignore it. Cool

Sorry

usually it's cars - and calcium & magnesium is a bugger to remove as even a low count sticks like the proverbial - if you are worried about scratching - use a buffer and industrial hand cleaner. It depends on the admix of chemicals on how hard it is to remove.

If you can get hold of it try Z off (labelled Zoff)

Tue, 2009-06-30 11:37

It takes everything off and I especially use it for glue from the back of stickers etc. It is pretty amazing but hard to get. Cleans everything on the boat, especially dried blood.

Cheers and lets hope
