No one likes a grimy bathtub, but no one likes to clean it either. However much you dread this task, you have many options available to make the process simpler. You can use a natural cleaning product, such as grapefruits and salt, or a commercial product to thoroughly clean your bathtub.
Use baking soda paste. This paste works well for rust stains, but you can also use it as a general cleaner. To make the paste, add water to the baking soda until it forms a paste-like substance. Then, use a sponge to apply the paste to the areas you want to clean. Scrub the paste into the surface to help remove the stains. Finally, rinse away the paste.
If your bathtub is very dirty or stained, apply the paste onto the affected areas, then spritz over it with white vinegar. Allow the baking soda and vinegar to set on the stain for 10-15 minutes, then scrub with a sponge. Finally, rinse away the baking soda and vinegar. This should remove the stains.
Try borax and a lemon. This coupling also works well on hard stains. Dust the stain with borax. Cut a lemon in half, and rub it on the stain. Let it stand for at least 15 minutes. Wash it away.
Practice everyday cleaning. If you clean out your tub every time you shower, you won’t have a buildup over time. Use the shower to sprinkle the tub with warm water, washing away any dirt. Wipe off the water with a towel or sponge.
Apply as directed. Leave the cleaner to sit, or scrub it in as directed by the manufacturer. Don’t use a metal or abrasive brush as it can damage your tub. For hard to reach places, try scrubbing using an old toothbrush and one of the aforementioned cleaning products.
