Cleaning you bathroom tub can be the worst thing to do when maintaining your bathroom. It is also important to regularly clean your bath tub so that you prevent rusting to happen. That is why it would really help to know how. Read through the article and know easy tub cleaning tips for an unforgettable bathing experience.
Using a bucket, pour hot water inside your tub. Spray your choice of cleaner at the top of one side of the tub. Leave it to run down to the bottom for a couple of seconds. You can also use a cheap shampoo in place of your cleaner. This works beautifully and what’s more is it’s got a fresh smell so you don’t have to hold your breath when you use chemicals (bleach and concentrated vinegar both have strong scent!).
However, if you want the smell of shampoo and the effectiveness of bleach, you may use natural cleaning products. Not just that, they are also safe to use and do not have any health hazards.
After spraying the surface, scrub them using a sponge or a rag. Never use a steel wool when scrubbing (unless you want your tub to get scratched!). Scrub until clean. Follow this by rinsing the tub with hot water. Feel the tub for any roughness. Scrub that area some more because obviously, it is not clean yet. Also clean the door.
If you have shower curtain you also have to clean this as this is home to molds and mildews. You can do this by taking off the curtain from its rod. Then slip it into your washing machine together with your cleaner or detergent. Spin it for a couple of minutes. Hang it in place and leave it draping to dry.
Also scrub and spray the tub, the showerhead (This is also susceptible to rust, so always make sure to clean it properly just as you clean other items in your bath!). Soap containers, towel rack and all items that you haven’t washed needs to be washed too! Rinse these items twice with hot water also for you do not want to leave soap and dirt residues on these. Be careful with the hot water for it can and might burn you!
Check the tub’s drain. If you see a puddle of filthy water dirt residues, you might want to open the drain and de-clog this using a plunger and a solution of white vinegar and water. Just pour the solution over the drain and leave it there for a few minutes to ensure that impacted dirt and other stuffs will be dissolved. And lastly, never forget to wash the outside of the tub.
Here are additional tips which can guarantee you a neat tub:
— If you are using chemical cleaning products, open the window or turn on the fan to ensure proper ventilation. Remember these chemical products are very caustic and emit a strong scent. However, you do not have to worry with this if you use natural cleaning products!
— Climb into the tub if you want to clean the tub much better. This will even prevent accidents caused by slipping.
— The most practical for you to clean your tub is right before or during your shower. You do not have to worry about getting yourself wet!
