1. Different materials have different cleaning methods
To clean the acrylic bathtub, do not wipe it with hard things such as coarse cloth or scouring pad, and do not use any cleaning agents containing granular objects to avoid scratching the bathtub. You can use a sponge or flannel to stick a mild detergent such as dishwashing detergent or glass water to clean, and do not use abrasive detergents.
The cast iron bathtub should be thoroughly rinsed with clean water after each use, and wiped dry with a soft cloth. Stubborn stains can be easily dealt with with a small amount of abrasive cleaning agent, and the bottom non-slip surface can be cleaned with a soft nylon brush. Steel balls, steel wire brushes or abrasive sponges cannot be used to scrub the cast iron bathtub.
2. Toothbrush and lemon deal with dirt
For the yellow dirt in the bathtub, you can directly cover the lemon slices, or you can dip a bit of salt on the lemon slices to make the yellow dirt gradually disappear. Some people use discarded soft toothbrushes to clean the bathtub, but discarded soft toothbrushes have always been used to brush their teeth, and there will always be some bacteria.
Simply use a new soft toothbrush dipped in bleach water to scrub the surface, so that stains and mold can be removed together. If it is limescale, the product used to clean the toilet is very useful, but the cleanser usually has a pungent smell. If it is unacceptable, you can try the more natural method of lemon and white vinegar.
3. Cleaning of debris and oil
For the hair or dirt floating on the hot water in the bathtub, you might as well float the old newspaper on the hot water surface of the bathtub and gently pull it out in an unfolded state so that the hair or dirt can be sucked up. This method is easy to use and easy to learn, but it can only be used to deal with debris such as hair.
More often, what many people ignore is the greasiness of the bathtub wall. Why is it greasy? Because the body itself secretes oil, soaking in the bathtub will stain the bathtub wall. For this kind of grease and ointment, you can use alkaline soap to clean it. The soap that is used for bathing daily is the best.
Only in a clean bathtub can you enjoy a comfortable bath, not only because of the dirt and greasy visible to the naked eye, but also the invisible substances such as bacteria, which should pay more attention to cleaning. The cleaning and maintenance of the bathtub need to be carried out on a regular basis and should not be lazy.
