You're better than your mess.

Hi UfYH! Okay, so I love cleaning. I really do. I find it relaxing to organise things, and I love the satisfaction I get when everything is nice and sparkly. I hate cleaning bathtubs though. I loathe them in fact. And because I hate doing them so much, I often put it off until it's a disgusting chore, rather than the quick wipedown I know it should be. Do you have any tips for cleaning bathtubs? Quick tips, and since I have left mine for so long now... the best way to get up all the grime?

Couple of things you can try:

  • Full the tub with hot water and cleaner. Let it sit for an hour, then drain it, scrub with a stiff brush and rinse.
  • Comet. Rinse the tub first so it’s a little damp, them sprinkle Comet (the old-school stuff in the green can) over it to make a sort of paste. Let it sit, then scrub with a stiff brush. use gloves.
  • Magic Eraser. I know I’m almost a parody of myself with this, but these things are freaking sorcery!
