If they’re calcium, try vinegar first.

Well if you don’t want to mess about you could go straight for hydrochloric acid.

Lime away is good if vineger doesnt work, but do be careful, its very caustic.

Like the others have said, white vinegar is the way to do it. Let it sit for a few minutes, then just wipe it away.
