Nice find - I have a couple of Edenfalk's designs for Skruf too.  It's a huge shame yours appears to have such heavy liming/clouding but these things were made to be used so I guess we can't moan about it!

If it's simply grime then nothing beats elbow grease and lots of warm soapy water - however, if it's liming and the surface of the glass itself is damaged then nothing other than professional repolishing will remove it.

have you tried Mark Hill's recipe of Coca Cola, for removing deposits. -  it might work.        Cheers           Paul  S.

Hi, l find using brown sauce to remove stains from glass pretty good
leave on overnight and simply rinse with warm water
good luck

it is obviously not a deposit but damaged by acid etched into the surface - so more acid will not help.
