Officially "Awesome" because Frotter said so!

Water hardness doubtless affects 80% of folk here on navitron by nature of location & geology.

Having spent WEEKS removing limescale from a kettle (spare) using nowt but vinegar & a lot of swirling but resenting the high price of "proper" tablets not being much cop I ordered an "interesting" product from a small uk company ..an industrial chemist the results were nigh on a mirrored kettle element cover, it is phenomonal, so thought i'd share it here for appraisal / discussion.

600g tub, 1 dose = 12 grammes.
Cannot be used for zinc nor enamel coated surfaces.

Good for you coffee machine spods! & certainly not "weak" like the citric acid based stuff.

The blurb on the back of the tub is written, intelligently compared to normal marketing speil, & the seller is very easy to contact if you have questions regarding potential use on this & that.
Clearly it contains some sulphuric acid along the line & does state necessary caution in use / application.

He does a few more products (I skimmed his other bits & bobs) ..however see this as having great soak solution potential for various items folk here may encounter.

Looks good, I may try it when I run out of current stock. For many years I have used citric acid crystals from the wine-making shop to clean the kettle. (plastic + stainless steel). My primary use is for cleaning small components after silver-soldering, so as it is a bit stronger, it may be quicker.

I would describe the "clean up" in terms of speed & ability like putting an anger fuelled  young mike tyson in the ring with a few hooded KKK members who'd been spouting forth mere moments before.
