It’s surprising that most people don’t really clean their bathtubs that often. I used to be like that as well. I would often clean my shower but ignore the bathtub, but doing this isn’t a good thing because mold will start to grow on it and that is something you don’t want to happen.
What you need
When cleaning your bathtub you’ll need the following:
- Baking soda
- Dish soap
- Cleaning cloth
- Cleaning sponge
How to deep clean bathtub
There are many ways to clean a bathtub but I picked out four of the best ones. These 4 methods will make your bathtub look clean in no time.
Cleaning bathtub with bleach
This is a great way to not only remove dirt and grime from the bathtub but also to remove mold as well. Bleach is a very strong and harsh chemical and using it without protection can sometimes cause some issues. So if you are using any type of bleach make sure to wear a mask and gloves.
To clean your bathtub with bleach make sure you get a clean cloth and pour bleach onto it. Then use the cloth to scrub the bathtub. Doing this will get rid of the mold that was on it.
After cleaning your bathtub with bleach be sure to leave your shower curtain and bathroom door open so that the bleach smell can escape.
Vinegar and baking makes the best shower cleaner
Vinegar and baking soda are two of the best cleaners you can use. They will clean and remove almost any stain from a lot of things. They work even better when you combine them together. To mix both vinegar and baking soda together you have to get a bowl and sprinkle 1-2 cups of baking soda into it then add 1/2-1 cup of vinegar and mix the two together. Now get a sponge and dip it into the mixture and use it to scrub the bathtub. After scrubbing the bathtub let the baking soda and vinegar residue sit for around 20 minutes. After that just rinse the bathtub.
This is often my go-to when I need to clean something. Dish soap Is usually the fastest and safest cleaning method you can use when cleaning your bathtub. Now there are many types of dish soap but I prefer to use dawn since it’s the one that works best for me.
To clean your bathtub with dawn dish soap you need to get a damp sponge and squirt a few drops of dawn dish soap onto it. Now use the sponge to clean the bathtub. Make sure to scrub away any dirt and grime you see. After doing that just rinse the bathtub.
How to clean bathtub without bending /kneeling
Often times one of the main reasons people don’t really like to clean certain areas around their homes is because of bending or kneeling down. This is something that I and most other people don’t like to do because doing this a lot can cause some knee and back pains. However, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t clean at all especially if your bathtub is dirty. I am going to show you how to clean your bathtub without kneeling.
Step 1 Fill the bathtub with warm water
Just fill the tub with a small amount of water (nothing past the ankles).
Step 2 Squirt dawn dish soap and bleach into it
Now squirt a few tables spoons of dawn dish soap and pour around 1/2 cup of bleach into the water. Mix the water around after doing this.
Step 3 Use a microfiber mop to clean the bathtub
Use any microfiber mop (or a regular mop) to clean the bathtub. If you don’t have a mop then you can use a spare broom. The broom will scrub away the dirt and grime better.
Step 4 release the water and rinse the bathtub
Release the water and use fresh water to rinse the bathtub.
This was the best way to clean your shower without having to bend and hurt your back.
