Green Stains in Tub and Around Fixtures?

I have a turquoise green calcium stain in my bathtub from a dripping faucet that dripped for a long time before I moved in. The landlord replaced the washer to stop the drip, but told me the stain cannot be removed. Any ideas on how to remove or make it look any better?

Heat vinegar in the microwave and pour it on. It will surprise you with the results.

If vinegar doesn't do the trick, try CLR.

I have the same problem but only in the bath tub, I have well-water so Im confused. I know my main lines are PVC pipe but I guess not around fixtures. Should I add something in my well to stabilize whatever is causing this?

We tried them all. Finally saw the peroxide notice. It worked. I've tried 10 other things. So excited!
