    I honestly don't know. When I read this tip elsewhere it specified brown. I always use brown cos that's what it said. My shower screens are very clean though, so it does work!

    Starflame I did the vinegar+shampoo. Have done three passes with some rubbing (not scrubbing though). And it's....

    actually. Not really much better. I'll keep looking too. If anything works I'll post. Feel free to do the same.

    I have the same problem. We have the completely clear shower screens and have the calcium deposits in the shape of water droplets

    I have tried ajax and scrubbing, dish washing liquid, vinegar, bleach. I think the only thing that is going to work is CLR and that is almost $20 for a spray bottle so it will have to wait until after xmas.

    Only thing I've found for tough shower marks is Duck shower and basin spray

    Star flame - keep in mind - if loads of various chemical cleaners have been used on that screen it may have what is called 'glass cancer'.
    Basically the chemical eat away at the glass, causing small holes that appear to look like a white film...it isn't treatable.
    Is there a heat lamp in the bathroom? - because this can also affect the glass.

    I have seen many shower screens whilst out demoing enjo - and you can tell if it is a build up ON the glass or something that has eaten INTO the glass.

    Wipe a small section with olive oil, if ithw white film goes clear it's glass 'cancer' as described by FITB.
