Hey guys,

I'm currently in the process of moving out of a rented property and I am very considerate and want to leave the flat in tip top condition (I also could really do with the FULL deposit back).

But I've never even noticed the stain on my radiator that is behind my sofa. I have never turn the radiator on or even moved my sofa since I moved in four years ago so you can imagine the stain it's created is very dry.

I have uploaded two images, the links are below.
Does anyone have any idea how I can remove this?! And what I can use?

Thank you so much in advance :)

Have you tried cleaning a small bit with a good cleaning agent / scouring sponge

Thank you for uploading the images. It wouldn't allow me to upload for some reason.

I have unfortunately. Doesn't seem to do anything at all.

I have tried bleach, multi-purpose and limescale removal.

I do have to wonder whether or not a very fine abrasive compound, such as T-Cut or Farecla (both car body paintwork restorers), might not be a better approach
