Amazing Tub Cleaner

Ok, I have found the BEST tub cleaner I've ever used.  We have a jacuzzi tub, and it's quite large.  I hate to clean it.  You know how it gets that soap scum that is hard to get off?  I have used every commerical product out there and can not find anything that gets it all off without me having to scrub my fingers to the bone.  My back is usually ready to break from bending over the damn tub for so long trying to get it clean.

No more!  A couple of weeks ago I pinned something from over at the  Food.com site that screamed "Tub & Shower Magic."  Now this was something that I had to try.  Check this out - TWO ingredients....



  • Take 12oz. vinegar and heat it up in the microwave.
  • Pour it into a squirt bottle.
  • Add 12 oz. blue Dawn liquid detergent.  I bought the advanced soaking power because that's what they had at Costco.
  • Shake it to mix it well.


Squirt it in your tub and watch out - wow!!  I tried it for the first time last week.  I sprayed it in the tub and let it sit there for about 10 minutes.  Frankly, I wasn't holding out much hope that it was going to work.  Well, I was wrong.

I will tell you it makes a nice soapy scrub.  And my tub shined when I was finished.  I was so happy that I got carried away and cleaned the sink, the toilet and the floor right away.  Chablis walked in the house just as I was finished and I was so excited about my clean tub that I yelled for her to come look at it.  Her exact words were "Holy crap!"

Look at the size of the vinegar and dawn bottles I bought.  I got them at Costco and they are huge.  They cost me less than $ 10.00 for both.  I have enough stuff left to make a years worth of Amazing Tub Cleaner that I will also use in the kitchen.  Now that's a giant savings.

Enough said!

    1. I usually try to use something with bleach in it for my grout, but I'll be trying the new miracle cleaner and see how that works in the shower on the grout.

  7. I use a vinegar dawn mix and a microfiber cloth for glass shower doors. Works pretty good.

  8. I need to try this. We have so many people going through one shower (as the other is on a 4-year remodel that hasn't started. LOL) I can never get it clean.
