I need some help cleaning our tub please...
If this was a computer there would be no issues. But its not. So at this time I have tried the traditional spray on all purpose cleaners with paper towels and the sponge. I have tired using my fingernails to remove some of this with little success. Bleach and water again little success. Any ideas would be helpful.
Thank you for anything you can send my way...
Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking soda are supposed to be great for cleaning everything.
(I wanted to include a link but apparently the one I want to link is not allowed. It was a Bob Villa article about how to clean a bathtub so a google search should turn that up for you.)
I would try draping vinegar soaked towels on the surfaces overnight and then follow up with baking soda on a synthetic scrub pad. It's going to take a lot of "elbow grease!"
I like good old Comet powder with Bleach if you can find it. I would get all areas inside the tub wet with hot water and then sprinkle it down with the Comet. Then, use a sturdy scrubbing sponge to spread a paste on all areas. I'd let this sit for a while and then scrub some more. Be sure to test a small area first to make sure it won't damage the finish of the tub.
Another winner for me is Bon Ami powder. Test this as well to see if it will work without damage.
Best of luck to you!
I live in Florida and the water here is awful. There seems to be a different kind of crappy buildup on every different kind of surface so no one thing works for everything. I gave up on all the tradition things and am now doing off-the-wall stuff to get rid of the buildup.
One of my favorites is dishwasher liquid. Smear it around the tub and let it sit for a while then wash it off. If it doesn't actually get rid of the buildup it will at least loosen it so something like Comet will finish it off. It's amazing what dishwasher liquid will clean.
Another favorite is a coarse fingernail file. I use one on my cats water fountain rather than a scrub brush because scrub brushes just don't scrap off the lime. The file got every bit of the scale off and didn't harm the surface of the ceramic bowl.
