If that one on the right is a 24p, it’s toast- you just send it to me and buy a new one.... If not- Salt Away, lemon juice, vinegar, or any mild acid should take it off.

I like the above suggestions and would try that first. Have had the same issue. Get the Scotch Brite brand scratch free "Dobie" sponge at the grocery store. Put some Mary Kate hull and bottom cleaner on it. Doesn't take much, as it has acid in it. It will rub off without much effort and keep rinsing with water. They will look like you are used to.

Unless they've been labbed and tuned to extract 1mph more, I'd use fine steel wool and soapy water. I've been doing that for years and if it scratched them, the scratches were too small for my eye. Bravo's are pretty hard to hurt.

P.S. I know your question was asking the "right way" to clean them so my answer is probably the wrong way but it works for me.

Try any mineral/lime remover like lime a way or Zep tile and tub cleaner.
