English term or phrase:grout scrubber
Can anyone help with a cleaning product term: grout scrubber. It is a product/material that is used to clean the cementing material used in between ceramic tiles. It applies to domestic and industrial use, especially in bathroom/restroom sanitation and cleaning. Preferably the term should be the term currently used in Latinamérica.
Manny: A quick web search will clarify what grout scrubber / cleaner is. Also, if you refer to the illustration, you will clearly see that what is being cleaned is tile, not a urinal!
What you are clearly describing in your response is called "lime" in EN and a lime remover is used to clean/remove it.

limpiador de sedimentos, as I used, Harold
Explanation: Because, at urinary and other bathroom devices, a grout is formed (a lot of material deposed, by Ca salts, urea, body acids & deficient cleaning procedures) and you have to remove it, clean, eliminate, that grout, which is not lechada, in that context, because lechada is Ca painting solution.
