How to Clean a Stained Bathtub

Even though you can’t always keep the tub clean, you can make it look like new. A stained tub will magnify the entire bathroom’s appearance in a negative way. You should also know that every bathtub needs a thorough cleaning, using professional products if necessary, based on the severity of existing stains.

In the meantime, you can easily remove the stains from the tub surface with common household ingredients. Here they are:

⚪ Baking soda

Baking soda works well for eliminating old bathtub stains. Combine one part baking soda with one part hydrogen peroxide. Put this mix over the tub stains and let it sit for 40 minutes. Use a soft cloth to wipe.

Pour a large amount of solution into the tub using a sprayer and sprinkle it all over.

Lastly, rinse the tub with plenty of hot water.

🟢 Vinegar

Combine half a gallon of vinegar with four tablespoons of baking soda and fill the tub with hot water. After waiting 3-4 hours, drain the water and wipe the stains with an absorbent sponge soaked in laundry detergent. This will result in a cleaner and whiter tub than you’ve ever seen before. Additionally, vinegar disinfects, so you can have a perfectly clean and disinfected bathtub in just a few hours.

In addition, after each use, spray vinegar into the tub using a spray bottle. Although the scent is quite pungent, you can rest assured that no bacteria or mold will live on your tub.

🔵 Chlorine

Even though chlorine is stronger than the other two options, it’s good to know it works on stubborn stains as well. Put the lid on the drain and simply pour enough chlorine straight from the bottle onto the tub walls. Wait 40 minutes for it to take effect.

Put on a pair of gloves and wipe the bathtub with a slightly abrasive sponge, then let the solution act for 10 minutes. Last but not least, rinse the tub thoroughly with hot water.

Attention! You should open the window when using chlorine, and if not, open the nearest door because the solution is toxic and can irritate the respiratory system.

If none of these methods work, your bathtub probably has too old stains for conventional methods, so it needs professional cleaning.
