CLR alternative?

CLR kitchen and bath works good, but it's expensive.

Any cheaper alternative?

Thanks !

vinegar, lemon, baking soda. I find HDX brand bathroom spray foam cleaner works pretty good at removing bathroom scale. Lemon is a natural descaler.

Vinegar works great if you don't mind the smell. It's also great as a rinse aid for the dishwasher, but massively cheaper.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

What do you need it for and why are you looking for an alternative?

Anyway vinegar works but may take bit longer. Any kind of acid really will work.

Buy concentrated CLR and mix it yourself. Kitchen and bath is just regular CLR and water in a spray jug.

Thanks. I bought the zep on clearance. It seems to work great in bath.

I need something to clean my kitchen sink and stove.

Is Concentrated just the Original Grey jug? I've never actually seen a "Concentrated" CLR.

Well, no I suppose not. The original grey jug is the normal and Kitchen & Bath is diluted. So one is normal and one is 3/4 water and a spray bottle for a jacked up price. A jug of CLR probably has a 4 year shelf life in a home where kitchen and bath will get used and replaced yearly or more.

Plain white vinegar. If you want a specific cleaning product, try Lemon Aide. It's natural and work pretty well with lemon juice.

So you're saying there's a more concentrated version than the Normal?

That's the bottle I usually see. And the Kitchen/bath one is a yellow spray bottle.

No. I am saying there is normal (grey jug) and diluted (kitchen and bath). So take normal and put it in a spray bottle with some water and you just made kitchen and bath.

Just keep in mind that these acidic cleaners cannot be used on some surfaces - eg marble which is easily etched by even weak acids.
