Help with cleaning Travertine

I need some advice with cleaning a Travertine Shower Floor water stains. It is my fault for not doing it sooner but now I can't seem to the water spotting clean. Picture attached. The white on the wall in the picture is just from the flash.Attachment 226802

You on a municipal water supply or well water, Bill?

Could be helpful if you'd put your geographic location into your User Profile.

That geographic location in your User Profile is often helpful.

Do you know if that water is tested for mineral hardness periodically? That sort of residue in my part of the country with individual water wells would generally be from mineral deposits.

Have you tried acidic cleaners (which would not be good for your Travertine)?

My opinion; worth price charged.

Have not tried tried acidic cleaners as it doesn't seem they are recommended for Travertine. I might carefully try a little vinegar.
Thanks
