TSP - trisodiun phosphate available at the hardware store is very
good. Also good for washing down the greasy kitchen walls before
painting. READ the label carefully. This stuff is caustic. No smell

CLR stain remover - Get it at any halfway decent supermarket or hardware
store. Supposedly, it's specifically made for removing (C)alcium,
(L)ime, and (R)ust stains/buildup. I'd tend to believe that, since it's
so effective. Pour it onto the spot, and it'll literally make rust
stains fade away to nothing as you watch. It has barely enough smell to
bother mentioning (faintly lemon/citrus-smelling), and that small amount
"fades into the background" in just a few seconds. It isn't at all
greasy, and rinses away clean.
Last time I used it was for a shower stall in a long-vacant house in
florida. When I moved in, the (originally white fiberglass) walls of the
stall (and pretty much everything else in the house that had anything to
do with being exposed to tapwater) were pumpkin orange anyplace the
spray-pattern from the showerhead had hit them. You could use the CLR
like ink to write on the walls - dip your finger, write your name, watch
it magically appear in white over the course of about 15 seconds. (Rinse
your finger afterwards, just to be safe)
Pouring the CLR into a squirt bottle and just lightly misting the walls
with it had the shower back to white again within a few (probably less
than five, total) minutes. Another 20 minutes or so of wandering around
the house spritzing anything that showed a trace of orange had the
plumbing looking spiffy again in short order.
