HOW TO CLEAN A BATHTUB
Who wants to take a relaxing soak in a dirty bathtub? No one. Ignoring a dirty tub only makes it harder to clean. A regular bathtub cleaning routine can turn a semiannual one-hour job into a quick and simple 10-minute job every month. Removing soap scum from your tub will also help your grout and glass stay cleaner for longer.

Cleaning a Bathtub Step-by-Step

  1. Fill up a bucket with hot water, and pour the water all over the tub.
  2. Sprinkle baking soda on all tub surfaces. For extra-dirty tubs, use tub-and-tile cleaner instead.
  3. Fill your bucket with a half-gallon of hot water and two tablespoons of dish soap.
  4. Dip a scrub sponge or a stiff nylon brush into the bucket, and scrub all bathtub surfaces.
  5. Use the bucket to periodically rinse out the sponge or brush and to transfer soapy water into the tub.
  6. When cleaning especially dirty tubs or stains, sprinkle baking soda directly onto the sponge or brush after dipping it in your bucket solution, and scrub hard.
  7. Once you’re satisfied and the tub looks clean, use the bathtub hand sprayer or the bucket to rinse the tub.
  8. Finish up by polishing the tub faucet, drain and handles with a clean, dry cloth.
