Zep makes a shower, tub and tile cleaner. You can get it at Home Depot. It has a very strong horrible smell, so I would pick up a face mask if you use it. The fumes can make you cough. You spray it on and leave the room for about 5 minutes and then go back in a scrub with a sponge (scrubby side). It takes off a good amount of hard water deposits along with soap scum if that is present. Smells horribly caustic, but works really well. I have also used the magic eraser and that takes soap scum off but I don't know how effective it is on hard water deposits. Never hurts to try.

Soap scum is a film that develops around showers, sinks or bathtubs. The film is made of minerals in the water combined with the soap used in these locations. Chemical cleaners are available that remove soap scum, but they also create potentially harmful odors and leave chemical residue on surfaces that you and your family touch. Natural soap scum removers are easily made at home and remove the grime without harming you and your family.
