Cleaning: Bathtubs



Save money and time cleaning your bathtub by cleaning it with an inexpensive hair shampoo. Shampoo quickly removes the rings in tubs.  You can also cut down on cleaning your bathtub if you use a little bubble bath in the water.

Here are some additional tips to save money cleaning your bathtub.


- Spray your bathtub 20 minutes before you clean it with mixture of water and vinegar. 
 It will loosen scum and body oils and cleaning it will be faster and easier.
- When cleaning your bathroom, do the bathtub last, as you may want to rinse rags in it from cleaning other parts of the bathroom, and you don't want to do the tub twice.
- Make your own bath cleaner.  Here is one recipe: 

All Purpose Household Cleaner

2 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp Borax
1/3 cup liquid dish soap
1 cup hot water
