What is the best way to clean under a clawfoot tub?
In my current house, I have a classic clawfoot tub. Though it isn't something I'd choose if building a house, it came with the place and has a certain cool factor to it. Also the thing is so heavily built, that it will become my shelter if there is ever a nuclear explosion.
My question though, has to do with cleaning. What techniques, cheats and tools do you use for cleaning under and around your clawfoot bathtub?
I had one once, and cleaned it by first, dusting underneath it with a long-handled duster, followed by cleaning with a mop. Of course, I had to get down on hands and knees to do both, which makes for a real pain, lol.
Dusting first, then mopping is the best approach. See my comment to bethperry's great answer. You can spray water over the surface after dusting to loosen the grime before mopping. An old terry bathtowel is a good alternative to a handled mop, but it requires getting on the floor. A toothbrush is good for cleaning in and around the feet. Regular cleaning is actually less work!!
