Different Ways to Clean a Porcelain Bathtub

Chilling in the bath is one of life’s greatest pleasures. But, if your tub is dirty, you might feel stressed instead of relaxed. To ensure its cleanliness, here are some things you can do:

Regular Cleaning Routine
For gentle weekly cleaning, look for store-bought cleansers that are marked “safe for porcelain enamel”, or make your own by mixing a few tablespoons of dishwashing soap with about a gallon of hot water. Use a rag or soft sponge to scrub the porcelain, and then rinse well with water. Source: Home.HowStuffWorks

Removal of Rust
If you have a rust stain (or any other marks or filth that the above techniques can’t touch) you can try this method as a last resort:

  1. Cover the stain with table salt
  2. Take half of a lemon and squeeze the juice over the salt
  3. Scrub the salt/lemon mixture with a clean cloth or a nylon sponge
  4. If the stain still doesn’t come up, leave the paste-mixture on the stain for an hour or so, then squeeze more lemon juice on the stain and try scrubbing the stain again
  5. Rinse and wipe clean Source: ApartmentTherapy

Keeping the Tub Shiny
Squeeze lemon oil onto a soft cloth and rub the sides of your bathtub. The lemon oil also forms a protective coating that helps stop water spots, soap scum and minor stains. Avoid rubbing the oil on the bottom of the tub because it can be quite slippery. Source: Hunker

Quick Clean
Need to do a quick tub cleanup before guests arrive? Grab the handiest item — your shampoo! It does a great job on soap scum because it rinses clean. You can use it to buff a shine into your chrome faucets as well. Source: RD
