  • I use scrubbing bubbles and a scrubber......I let it work its magic for a few minutes while I clean the rest of my bathroom and then scrub the tub and walls. I rinse it out with warm water and then spray tilex daily spray which keeps it from acquiring too much soap scum daily. Just a note....if you use body wash instead of soap..that greatly reduces soap scum!

  • I use a Magic Eraser. We have bad water and there is not a cleaner out there that works without 45 minutes of scrubbing, but that Magic Eraser cleans in just minutes.

  • I use Soft Scrub from the store and a scrub brush. It works very well for me. My friend swears by the scrubbing bubbles scrubby pads, but I haven't tried them yet.

  • I like scrubbing bubbles but any brand will do the job...remember on a new tub it will shine beautifully but if you have an old tub it will just look ok clean...GL

  • I use Tub & Tile Bathroom Cleaner. It cuts right through the soap scum and does it with natural ingredients of citric acid. No harsh fumes or ingredients. I know that there are natural ingredients which I could use from my kitchen and make myself, but when the mood hits to clean I need to have it ready to go.
