Blitz your limescale: no elbow-grease required

Blitz your limescale: no elbow-grease required

Nothing spoils a gleaming kitchen or bathroom as much as the crust of limescale, and there are much better ways to deal with it than scrubbing.

Start with a great limescale product

From vinegar to lemon juice, there are lots of old-fashioned ‘solutions’ that are supposed to help you tackle limescale, but if you haven’t already discovered Viakal, you’ll be amazed at how quickly and easily it gets everything gleaming.

Not only does it remove limescale instantly, but it also protects your surfaces three times longer* than other limescale removers (which means less cleaning – hooray!). And with its smart water-sheeting technology, Viakal even keeps watermarks at bay, too.

Keep on top of things

It may seem obvious, but the more you leave limescale to build up, the tougher it’ll be to tackle. Best to blitz those sinks, taps and shower as soon as you see even the beginnings of limescale.

Don’t scrub

Although you can remove some limescale by scrubbing, you’re likely to damage the finish of your stainless steel sink or shower screen in the process. Far better to save your energies (for something more important like putting your feet up with a cuppa!) and use Viakal to gently get rid of the mineral deposits.


If you’re trying to get rid of a stubborn area of limescale, you need to give your Viakal a bit longer to do its work, which means soaking. To soak the underside of a tap or a shower head, try filling a plastic cup or bowl with Viakal and then tie it in place with string.

Sounds Great


I have never tried or even heard of the product before, but I will definitely be looking for it on my next shopping trip. Living in a hard water area I really struggle with lime scale

This is a fantastic 'tool' especially in a hard water area. For taps use a small toy balloon instead of cups or anything solid, for shower heads use a sturdy small sandwich bag. These help by keeping the product in closer contact with the limescale. You can gently squeeze these occasionally to move the solution around the affected area. This means that the limescale is easier to remove at the end.

Viakal is amazing

Viakal really is a miracle worker - especially if you leave it for a short time to work its magic. Really good on taps! Thankyou!

works wonders but still suggest ventilating the bathroom very well can be a bit strong on the nose
