Removing Water Spots from Empty Fish Tank

Does anyone know how to remove water spots from the inside of a fish tank? The fish died and I got really disgusted with the tank so I let the tank just dry up. Now it looks ugly!

Comet Bathroom spray works the best that I've tried. Use the rough side of a sponge or a used dryer sheet(not a new one) and it will get it right off there.

I am not sure that using a cleanser such as this is a good idea in an aquarium where you will put fish. I would try vinegar, as it is likely just a lime deposit that you have. Whatever you use, rinse really really well before you use the tank again.

I use salt to clean my tank. It is a mild abrasive and easily rinced out. Just sprinkle non idonized salt on a damp sponge and scrub away. I recently picked up a tank from another freecycler that was green and it came out sparkling with just a little elbow grease.
