An Easy Clean For The Bathtub

Sometimes you get stains on your fiberglass Bathtubs and sinks, many times these stains are dirt and soap scum. Soap scum can be very hard to clean off from your fiberglass tub and sinks. If you know the right way to do it you can remove stains from your fiberglass tubs and sinks quickly and economically. If you are a man, this technique will really impress your wife. She will be happy with you for the rest of the day. This is how the cleaning guys clean a bathtub.

What You Will Need

• A cup
• A towel
• A box of Brillo pads
• Elbow grease

Soap scum, dirt and grease can accumulate on your fiberglass sink and tub even if you try to keep it clean. This can happen from your children taking baths, your greasy husband taking showers or from you when you clean the dirt off of your body. Many products on the market are made to keep your tub and sink clean, but they do not keep away all of the soap scum that develops on your fiberglass tubs and sinks. You need to break down and use some elbow grease.
Go to the supermarket and buy a small box of Brillo Pads. This should cost you under two dollars including tax. Take your Brillo pads home and get ready to get rid of the soap scum and grease that has stuck to the sides of your fiberglass bath tub and sinks.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to remove the stains from your fiberglass tubs and sinks quickly and economically. Take a Brillo Pad and wet it with water. Get your supplies together and have them ready. Fill your plastic cup up with water, set your towel over to the side where it will stay dry.

Take your wet Brillo Pad and begin scrubbing the soap scum and greasy stains on the side of your fiberglass bathtub and/or sink. Watch as your elbow grease and the Brillo pads easily remove the stains from your fiberglass tub and sinks. In thirty minutes you will be able to clean all of the scummy stains from the fiberglass bathtub and sinks in one complete bathroom.

When the stains are removed, take your cup of water and splash it across the built up soap from your Brillo pads. Continue to do this until all of the soap scum, grease and soap have been washed off from your tubs and sinks. You will be amazed at how nice your fiberglass bathtub and sinks look within thirty minutes of work. Take your towel and dry off your tubs and sinks. Show your wife your finished work and she will be impressed.

It should take you two to three Brillo pads to clean a complete bathroom set of fiberglass bathtubs and sinks. A box of ten Brillo pads costs less than two dollars. If you used five Brillo pads, your job would have cost you under a dollar. Try to buy this clean at your local Dollar store. They may sell you the Brillo pads, but they won’t throw in the elbow grease.

Brillo pads are cheap. Brillo pads cut through soap scum easily with the proper elbow grease. Throw the old Brillo pads away Make sure you show your wife the nice shiny clean fiberglass bathtub. Take a break, you deserved it

Tell everybody, you learned how to clean your bathtub from The Cleaning Guys.


  1. Hi cleaning guys! I'll send my husband your way too because I don't clean...he does! I'm following via GFC from the Thursday Blog Hop.

  2. This is a great way to get rid of soap scum, just don't push down too hard, it can scratch the finish, then you won't get the tub clean in the future because dirt gets imbedded in the small scratches. I learned that the hard way :( Hope you are having a great week, congrats on being the spotlight blog on the hop this week!! I am following and look forward to more great tips and ideas.

  3. I love brillo pads! I think they are the best at cleaning! New follower, cant wait to read some more :)

  7. Stopping in from the drop hop. Speaking of cleaning tub soap scum - I actually found a cleaner at the dollar store that works REALLY well! Can't tell you the name - comes in a white bottle with green label. I spray the tub, apply the cream-like cleaner, wait a few mins. and take the brush to it. It's the best cleaner I've found for the tub we have - since we moved in 6 yrs. ago.
