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