You know what I find challenging and frustrating? Removing soap scum buildup in the bathroom! This cloudy grime is pretty hard-to-remove, and just scrubbing the bathroom with a regular bathroom cleaner won’t solve the problem. You have to bring in the heavy artillery, because soap scum buildup is composed from a lot of things such as: mildew, hard water, mineral deposits, soap talc and body oils. This is quite an interesting dirt combo we need to clean.
Alongside with soap scum, you have to take a closer look to the material on which this buildup is stuck, otherwise we may ruin it!
But, I found a great soap scum remover that can do real wonders for your tub, regardless the material it’s made. So, buckle up with the next ingredients, and bring back the sparkle of your bathtub.
- hot water
- dish soap (I used Dawn Dish Soap)
- First step is to fill the tub with water, until the water line is 1 finger above the soap scum line.
- Add a squirt of dish soap.
- Now, it’s the waiting period! Leave the water to soak the soap scum buildup for 1 hour.
- Ok, after the waiting game is over, drain the water until an inch or two remains, and add another squirt of dish soap.
- This is the scrubbing moment: just scrub away each bathtub inch to remove all the soap scum deposits.
- Rinse at the end with plenty of water.
