Thankfully, we’ve got a few tried and true methods to easily clean a bathtub.

The best way to get started is with green cleaning supplies, so that you can remain environmentally friendly (and save some cash in the process). The best part of all is that many of the ingredients are already available at home, such as hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and vinegar!

To get started, take down your shower curtain liners. Personal products (including bath mats) have to be removed, too.

Next, spray down the area with a vinegar solution. Allow that mixture to sit for about 20 minutes and use a toothbrush or soft bristle scrub brush to help loosen up any grime.

After that, make a paste using baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Take some clean water and clean the area when you are done.

When you are ready to use the tub again, you can keep mildew and soap scum from formulating again by spraying vinegar after showers.

Tea tree oil is another useful ingredient to keep the tub free of festering bacteria.

There’s no need to spend a lot of money on environmentally harmful cleaning products. The above methods work even better and are much cheaper alternatives to typical bathroom cleaners.
