  • Vinegar cuts soap scum but cleanser will get most everything else. Don't mix them! I can't get on my knees, they're messed up, and my back hurts when I bend and sometimes the vertigo makes bending unsafe, so I've learned to use a broom. My ex mother in law used to clean the tub while she was bathing. Whatever works best for you. If you have lime issues use vinegar and if that doesn't get it use 'The Works'. I think you can still get it at the dollar store. Its just as good as clr but cheaper.

      Hey, if you need to mix vinegar with cleanser you can use salt or crushed egg shells for cleanser. I saw online someone using dish soap to clean the tub.

  • Kids are pretty darned special. You could make one of those and then teach it how to clean the bathtub and there you go. (joke). Seriously, though, it depends on what is going on with the tub. If it's mineral stains, those are pretty tough to remove, but something like CLR should work (although last time I used it it didn't work as well as I recalled it working long ago). If it's something fungal (mold or mildew), that's also tough, but bleach should take care of it pretty well if you spray it and let it die then clean it up a few hours later. Soap scum can scrub off with hot water and a sponge. Hairballs you can pick up with your fingers, etc. It depends.
