    Vinegar might work.

    Baking soda and one of those no scratch sponges, cleans things nicely.

    Not working, Don't know if baking soda power has been weakened, it's laying around for sometime.

    The thick still remains, though glass looks cleaner.

    Back side looks better than front:cautious: , I just flip sides and rearranged.:LOL::ROFLMAO:



    Just filled more water this time so that water level mark remain underwater.

    An old timer I know swears by vinegar, also.

    But I recently used a product called "LIMEAWAY"(calcium and lime remover)...Because I had some and I was out of vinegar.
    Obviously, I rinsed it very well before I used the aquarium....

    It worked fantastically and with almost NO scrubbing.

    "LIMEAWAY", I had pretty good results with it on an aquarium also, although with heavy deposits, I did 2 applications, lots of soaking and scrubbing too. Do be careful and wear rubber gloves and old clothes, it will put holes in fabric, I now have a holey sweat shirt!

    Use Limeaway and soak it. When before rinsing it gee\t a brand new single edge razor blade and at about a 45 degree angle scrape like a snow plow. Make sure it is a brand new razor blade or it will scratch the glass. A new one will not...the rust and jagged edge old one will scratch.

    Sounds good, I will try that next time I plan to clean the glass.
