    What is the best thing to clean scaly, vinyl pool walls with?

    Wondering what is the best thing to clean the light, scaly, film off of the exposed part of the vinyl pool liner with (the part that stays dry)? I have some pool store stuff called "Off The Wall". Is that okay or is there a home remedy for this too?

    I find that the "magic eraser" appears to scratch my vinyl. I only use it on my steps. I use a product called "Green Works" (natural) and a bristle brush to clean the water line of my liner - It does a great job. It's made by Clorox.
