  5. When people on this forum think ‘acid’, why do they always go for nitric? That’s surely the nastiest option unless the aim is to colour wood. If it’s just to react with calcium carbonate then any acid will do the trick. If you want something stronger than vinegar, then hydrochloric acid - known as ‘spirits of salts’ - will work. It should be available in any hardware shop. You will probably want to dilute it considerably. Always add acid to water, not water to acid. I use it to clean my toilets. Andrew
