Yep that's the idea @Gerti1 only I didn't know they existed so I improvised. I probably should've patented my method 20 years ago.

I used to fill a condom with white vinegar and pop it over the shower head thingy and leave it overnight. It's the acid that eats away the limescale.

 ;D @tea always over-delivers on the comments! Amazingly high value contributions! Love it.

Have to confess I have always stuck with Viakal :)

Maybe thats why I ended up with 5 children.  Viakal may work well on stopping limescale but @tea 's tip may work better stopping something else.   :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Hi @Burners  well done on getting to day 10, and down to one crave is a great feeling isn't it.  Those difficult first few days will soon be a distant memory.

Sounds like you had a good weekend and you sound upbeat and positive too  :)

@tea  cheers for the condom tip, I may try that on my taps or maybe the cleaning thingies @Gerti1 bought - depends which is cheapest  :D
Smoked for most of my adult life (and a fair bit of my childhood!).  Managed a two year quit 2014-2016 but started again!  Quit again on 6th January 2018 and lasted 7 months!  Back on the wagon again now...........

.....I was under 25 at the time and they gave huge bags of the things for free. I know I'm weird but for things you can't soak like tap ends and fixed shower heads a little bit of ingenuity goes a long way in the war on limescale.  :-[ I'm a freak  :-[
