Bathtub > Cleaning

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. To clean a bathtub, sprinkle Arm & Hammer Baking Soda on a damp sponge, scrub, and rinse clean.

Cascade. For a powerful way to clean grease, grime, and rust stains from the bathtub, fill the tub with hot water, add two tablespoons Cascade dishwasher detergent, and let stand for about ten minutes. Use an abrasive sponge to scrub any stains and then rinse clean with water. The phosphates in the Cascade whiten even the dirtiest tubs. Repeat if necessary.

Dawn Dishwashing Liquid. To clean soap scum from a bath tub, pour Dawn Dishwashing Liquid on the stained area, let sit overnight, and rinse clean with water. Dawn Dishwashing Liquid cuts through grease and cleans older tubs without harming the finish.

Easy-Off Oven Cleaner. For really tough grease stains or mineral deposits, put on protective eyewear and rubber gloves and spray Easy-Off Oven Cleaner over the stubborn spots on your bathtub. Let set for thirty minutes, making sure the room is well ventilated. Scrub gently with an abrasive sponge and rinse clean with warm water.

Gillette Foamy. To clean the bathtub and let your kids have a blast at the same time, give your kids a can of Gillette Foamy shaving cream to entertain themselves in the bathtub. They can use the shaving cream to draw on the tile walls, and when you wash the condensed soap off with water, the bathtub will be sparkling clean. Your kids will come out amazingly clean as well.

Heinz White Vinegar. To make cleaning mineral deposits from hard water from your bathtub easier, fill the bathtub with hot water, pour in four cups Heinz White Vinegar and let sit overnight. The acetic acid in the vinegar breaks up the mineral deposits, making them easier to scrub off with an abrasive sponge.

Jet-Dry. To clean hard water stains from a bathtub, fill the bathtub with hot water, pour in four ounces Jet-Dry, and let soak for a few hours. This softens the hard-water build-up, making it easier to remove.

L’eggs Sheer Energy Panty Hose. To scrub the bathtub and bathroom tiles, ball up a clean, used pair of L’eggs Sheer Energy Panty Hose. The nylon is a mild abrasive and doubles as a scouring pad. Or for more fun, wear the panty hose and roll around in the bathtub and against the tile walls.

McCormick Cream of Tartar and Hydrogen Peroxide. To remove a stain from the bathtub, make a thick paste from McCormick Cream of Tartar and hydrogen peroxide, apply the paste to the stain, and let dry. Scrub with a brush and rinse thoroughly.

Skin So Soft Body Lotion. To remove a ring from the bathtub, add three capfuls Skin So Soft Body Lotion under the faucet while filling the tub with hot water. Use a sponge to wipe the ring right off.
