Removing Bathtub and Shower Soap Scum
There is nothing worse than spending hours cleaning your bathroom, and you look at your shower or bathtub and still see a soapy residue ring around it! Sometimes this task never seems done, and it feels impossible to ever get clean again. Here is a helpful tip to getting rid of that eyesore and letting your bathroom sparkle like it’s supposed to and all just using a grapefruit and salt!
- Grapefruits (1-3) depending on shower/tub size
- Salt – coarse salt (like Epsom salt) will be best during scrubbing
- Rinse bathtub or shower with water
- Sprinkle salt around the tub scum and on the area needing cleaning
- Cut up a grapefruit into quarters and top a slice with salt
Squeeze and scrub! Use the grapefruit as a scrubber over the salt and clean along the tub ring, in the corners of the shower or any other areas needing cleaning
- Rinse and repeat if necessary
This method works particularly well with rustic tubs and older bathrooms. Citrus and salt are a proven cleaner, and soap scum won’t stand a chance against it, and it smells amazing! Have you tried this method? Let us know at @SavageandSon!
