Bathroom Cleaning Tips : How to Really Clean Your Bathtub & Surrounding Area

By Grover Koelpin 2 comments

First thing you want to do is pick the right
type of cleanser to go to the right type of surround. Your surround around the bathtub
maybe tile, maybe granite, it may be concrete or it could be just normal fiberglass from
the bathtub. So you want to be sure whatever you are working with you pick out the correct
product. I am just, I really like when I work on surround, I like using a liquid a clear
liquid instead of paste because it’s just easier to wash away. So I, what I am going
to do is just take a 409 or a Fantastic product and I am just going to really spray. You want
to spray it, there’s a lot of little ledges and cracks right here that collect a lot of
dirt so I’m going to spray and then I’m going to take my sponge and just go around and give
it a really good soaping. Now you, when you do this you might want to, well you will want
to start off , especially if you have a lot of girls who, you have, you end up having
a lot of hair in your bathtub. You’ll want to take all the hair with a paper towel, just
get all the hair away first before you start rinsing and it goes into the drain and clogs.
So first clean the hair off and then start soaping up. And then you want to work with
your handles and your faucet and if you need those hard to get areas you can also use just
an old toothbrush, soft. And go around, also you want to remember if you have things on
your bathtub like soaps and plants and things. You want to take everything off and you probably
should do this before you begin. Because a lot of times the residue from the bottles
will drip down. Sometimes they’ll mildew if they’ve been sitting for a long time. So once
you’ve done that then with a hand squirt or with a bucket, you are just going to go back
and really wash well. And you might want to rinse several times to be sure that you get
the soap off. This is Ann Myrick and that is how you clean around your bathtub, the
surround and the ledges.

Why is she cleaning like the year is 1900? It's 2012, a time where easier ways have been developed for cleaning bathtubs or showers without standing inside, bending or kneeling.
Use Tub Scrub a long handle brush designed for cleaning bathtubs, tiles and showers without all the bending she is doing. See our videos on youtube

@ezscrubbin I don't even know if she thinks it is 1900! People didn't even clean their bathtubs like that back then. More like the 1850's when they started discovering cleaning. 😀
