There is nothing more glorious and relaxing than a nice, hot bath. Hardly anything compares to slipping into a peaceful, bubbling, steaming bathtub that has just been cleaned.
Yes, you read it right, a cleaned bathtub.
Nothing feels worse than slipping into a bath that feels moldy and dirty.
Start addressing the hard water splodges on the fixtures, the mildewed grout lines, and the soapy residue layer surrounding the drain. You owe it to yourself to clean the tub. Then enjoy having a clean (possibly lavender-scented?) bathtub to unwind in.
Here’s a guide on how to clean your bathtub to enjoy and unwind after a tiring day.
7 Easy Steps to Clean Your Bathtub
Even when you’re busy, schedule time each week to clean the bathtub, at the very least, thoroughly disinfect the area. And without a doubt, take into account periodic tub deep cleaning. That also applies to the grout, shower curtain, showerhead, drain, and tile.
You will need the following:
- Cleaning brush
- Dish soap
- Baking soda
- Diluted water and bleach solution
Ultimate Bathtub Cleaning Guide
Step 1 – Rinse
Use hot water to quickly rinse your tub to moisten it and loosen any visible debris or filth before flushing it into the drain.
Step 2 – Sprinkle Baking Soda
All around your tub, along with the drain region and the faucet fittings, generously sprinkle baking soda.
If your tub is extremely dirty, replace the baking soda with a commercial tub and tile cleaner and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Step 3 – Soap
Fill your bucket halfway through with hot water and a few drops of mild but efficient dish soap.
Step 4 – Scrub
The amount of soapy water you use will vary depending on how dirty your bathtub is. Use your sponge or cleaning brush to scrub away the filth.
If your bathtub is extremely filthy, you can directly sprinkle baking soda on the brush or sponge and clean your bathtub with great force. Baking soda and soapy water mixed together will create a sort of sloppy paste that will do its job.
Step 5 – Rinse again.
Does your bathtub look clean now? Can you see its true color now? Good!
Use more hot water to thoroughly rinse the tub.
Step 6 – Sanitize
To eliminate any sneaking mold, mildew, or lingering germs, sanitize your bathtub and the surrounding surfaces with a water and bleach solution or store-bought disinfectant.
Follow the directions on any cleaning supplies you purchase from the store carefully because you frequently need to allow them to soak before wiping them down.
Step 7 – Polish
Finally, use a fresh, dry cloth to give the tub’s hardware, including the handles, faucet, and drain, a little polish.
