    What are the best products for cleaning a tub?

    I've tried Tilex, Comet, and Bar Tender's Keeper, The best one so far is Bar Tender's Keeper, but my tub still isn't clean. Help!

    C.L.R. works way good when Comet doesn't.

    Magic eraser works great for me, gets all the nastiness out.

    That depends on the enamel finish.  If it hasn't been ruined then you shouldn't have to use harsh abraisive cleaners like comet or even vim.  Sounds like you have an old tub or a tub with a worn finish.  When the enamel is worn off it looks dirty instantly and is very difficult to clean.  When the enamel is good, you need only use a mild cleaner, even shampoo will get rid of any soap scum with a cloth.

    You might want to look at having your tub refinished if its really bad.  If its not bad, try baking soda.  It works well at removing soap scum and other things that make the tub dirty plus there is no harsh chemicals.

    My favorite cleaning agent is Borax - especially for the bathtub.  It has worked better than Clorox and baking soda.  A sprinkling of Borax goes a long way in getting a slimy bathtub clean.  I also use Borax to help control the infestation of insects in the home.  There are plenty of hubs about Borax like:

    I had this issue and was seriously considering re-surfacing the bathtub.  My parents came to visit and transformed it back to sparkling white with Vim cream and elbow grease.  Please note, though, that this is only recommended when nothing else has worked, as it will take  off some of the surface enamel.  Another option you can try is toothpaste as this is gently abrasive- not only does it remove stains, but it smells good too!

    I like Scrubbing Bubbles.  I think it does a good job, plus has a nice clean smell.  Other cleaners I find are hard to use because the odor is so strong, but this one is great.  To get the stains out, I would let the cleaner sit for a good hour or so, and see if that works.  If the stain is from bad water, try Ironout.
