What is the best cleaner to get it off?
I've had a a month of scapula pain and was having treatments and couldn't move my arm, now today I see I'm going to have a heart attack getting the bath tub clean!
I think dh is brushing his teeth in there again! It looks like toothpaste on the walls!!! I've scrubbed the floor (of shower) with comet liquid cleaner and then used comet grit stuff it took an hour, but that stuff won't stick to the walls
Please help

I've already used up the two I have, they don't last very long, they are crumbling

You must have alot of build up...they work wonderful for me. I have not tried the dryer sheets but someone in another group posted they are good. If all else fails, I would use white vinegar mixed with baking soda, after it stops fizzing, I would keep applying and scrubbing. After it is all clean, use the magic erasers daily. they are crumbling from so much scum, I would think. .

I've been using the master bath so I haven't seen this

Do you wet a dryer sheet?

I use dryer sheets to get soap scum off of my shower doors.  They work wonders for soap scum and make the bath smell clean and fresh.  Wet them, and scrub away.  When you're done, follow up with some Windex or other household cleaner to help with the residue and rinse clean.  :)

We had the hardest water ever when we lived in Arizona. The only eat to clean our toilets and sinks was with a pumice stone. Seriously. And they sell them in the cleaning aisle for that purpose.
