Whiten a Bathtub Shower

Updated:2013-12-06 16:50:50
Cleaning your bathtub is often a difficult and thankless chore. The reward, however, is a white tub that sparkles and is free of stains and mildew. White tubs and showers are often more difficult to keep looking clean than colored or tinted tubs since soap scum and mineral deposits show up more easily. A little routine care, and your tub can always be ready to use.
Instructions as follows:
Firstly, fill a spray bottle with your choice of cleaning solutions. Diluted bleach works well to whiten tubs, as does grease-cutting dish soap mixed with water. There are a number of commercial shower cleaners, as well, that do the trick.
Secondly, spray your detergent on the tub and shower's surface and stone walls. Allow it to sit for at least 10 minutes to allow it to penetrate any stains or grime.
Thirdly, use an abrasive on trouble spots after you have allowed the cleanser to penetrate. Commercial powders work well, or use salt, boric acid or baking soda. Scrub soiled areas with a sponge or rag, rinsing frequently with a pitcher of water to observe your progress.
Fourthly, rinse and dry the tub thoroughly when you are satisfied with the tub and shower's whiteness. Drying it after every use cuts down on the incidence of mildew growth.
Tips & Warnings
If you are looking for a natural solution to whitening your tub and shower, try sodium perborate. Sprinkle the granules into a bathtub filled with warm water and allow it to stand for up to two hours. This is a safe, non-fuming alternative to chlorine bleach.
Never use steel wool to try to remove stains from showers and tubs, as abrading the surface gives mold, mildew and dirt a place to hide, creating new and worse stains.
Always check cleaners' labels for recommended use. The type of tub you have should dictate your final choice in cleansers.
If using bleach, use in a well-ventilated area and never mix with anything except water. Mixing bleach with other cleaners or ammonia can cause a toxic gas.
