cleaning vases

In getting my bulb vases out I'm noticing how cloudy some of them are. These desperately need a clean. Bulb vases sitting with water in them for months seem to exacerbate the staining problem. Also London hard water? The cranberry vase got so cloudy recently so it could be a factor.

I've tried variously things in the past to clean vases but I'm going to try some stronger remedies now, including a Dremel to polish off the stains. Will post the results here.

I tried a local garden centre again at the weekend and found they did have bulbs in stock. I bought a few but nothing new or different.
