Now, I thought the water in Chicago was hard — every week I'd have to combat the pink rings around the drains from all of the excess iron — but it is nothing compared to Paris water. Paris water suffers from an excess of calcium to such a degree that literally every single bathroom cleaner in the store advertises itself as "anti-calcaire" — clearly, this is a major problem for everyone.
What is difficult to find is a natural cleanser or pipe cleaner that's meant to deal specifically with calcium deposits. So, I put the question to you: is there a natural way to clean calcium deposits out of your pipes? Do any of you live in Paris and have experience with this particular problem? Let me know!
