for hoods with calcium and hard water marks remove the hood and then use abit of lime water and add a bit of baking soda and rub in then rinse of with warm water your hood will look like new
That sounds like an interesting combination for the hood and I'd love to try it since I do have some hard water marks on my hood that vinegar didn't remove.

But what exactly is lime water? Is it just lime juice diluted with water?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

no it is lime juice but squoze from the fruit its self the drinking juice is totally diffrent
the same as the fruit you squeze in a coctail

just chop the lime in half you can use the half of the lime it's self to clean the hood squeze the lime juice out and then pour half a tea spoon on the lime (the inside bit) then rub the lime over the hood scrubbing the worst bits leave it about 40 sec's then quick scrub again and rinse well
