  • I use Comet. Sprinkle it on the moist shower, let it sit for about twenty minutes, then go back with a wet scouring pad and work it into a paste, and then rinse off with warm water.

  • yeah it takes alot of work but comet and a scrubing pad work great. afterward you'll have a sparkling shower and tub. Nothing else has really worked for me

  • This is what we use for most cleaning (initially used as part of my daughter's 6th grade science fair project). It is cheap (my favorite) and non-toxic.
    1/4 cup white vinegar
    3/4 cup warm tap water
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    10 drops of tea tree oil (antibacterial, antifungal, etc.)
    2 drops oil of lavender essential oil (optional) (antiseptic and smells nice)
    For extra scrubbing, I make a paste with salt, baking soda and vinegar.

  • I would just use baking soda, and then rinse really well.

  • CLR works wonders, just wear gloves and have ventilation.
