Foam lance problem

Hi. Last time I used my foam lance a few weeks ago it hardly produced any foam at all. It was just like milky water. Rather than cleaning the gauze I replaced it with a new one. Today was the first chance I have had to try it again but it is exactly the same. I am using Gyeon foam and have been for the last 18 months never had a problem before. The lance is about 6 years old. Is there anything else what could be causing it or do I need to get a new one? Pressure washer seems ok so I'm wondering what to try next?

Sounds like there could be a blockage some where. If completely stripping the lance and soaking it overnight in a cleaning solution doesn't fix it then it may be time to get a new one.

My gauze has a lot of limescale on it. What solution is best to clean it?

White vinegar will breakdown lime scale, its cheap, easy to get hold of and effective.

You can get Lime scale removers like tablets you dissolve but i dont find them as effective
