I hate cleaning the bathtub. I'll be honest, I used to wait until we were having house guests to clean it. Then a few years back I tried a homemade cleaner I found on Pinterest (read about it HERE). Little did I know that it would knock my socks off. Seriously, it is the best homemade cleaner. My bathtub has never stayed cleaner because I DON'T HAVE TO SCRUB IT! A no-scrub cleaner that cuts through soap scum and ring-around-the-tub? Yes! It's for real! I have been using it for several years now. All my family uses it. I talk to my friends about it. It is THAT good!
To make your own homemade tub cleaner, you will need
1 cup original blue Dawn dish soap
1 cup white vinegar
Heat the vinegar in the microwave for 1 minute. Pour both ingredients into a plastic spray bottle and spray evenly over the tub. Warning: it stinks.
In 30 minutes to 1 hour, come back and use a cleaning rag to wipe away all the grime. Wipe, not scrub. Really!
If you don't believe me, just look at these photos:
Score! I did not scrub one tiny bit and my tub is sparkling white. The pictures just don’t do it justice. I could actually see the line down the middle where the solution touched the tub. Look:
And no scrubbing! Really… I just wiped the grime away!
You can use other brands of dish soap. They work okay. But blue Dawn is still the best I've found.
P.S. Did you know they sell cleaning grade vinegar? I found mine at Wal-Mart by the other multi-purpose cleaners. It’s cheaper than food grade vinegar and is perfect for jobs like this.
Still skeptical? I let my tub build up grime for two months just to make a video to show you exactly how amazing this stuff is. Why? Because when you find something this good, you have to share it with everyone!
