    Default How do you clean your bath?

    Riveting topic of conversation here but how does everyone clean their baths?

    Before DS was born we hardly used our bath so every now and again I would vacuum the inside of the bath and that was enough.

    Now that it’s used every day I feel like there is always a layer of dust/dirt that’s not easy to wipe off and it always looks dirty?! Whats the secret to a clean bath?

    🧼

    I'm not sure if it's right but I spray it before running it most nights.
    If it looks grubby I use jiff creme cleaner and a scrubbing brush then rinse it.

    After bathing the dogs I clean it with disinfectant

    I spray it with vinegar then sprinkle bicarb over it then spray again with vinegar let it sit for a few minutes and wipe with a damp cloth. Gets off all the marks from kids toys easily.

    This mix is also great for cleaning grout. We have red soil so our tiles get red and gross and this makes it easy to clean

    I scrub ours with some spray or mould remover. But like you it always looks dirty. Not sure if it's just old or stained.

    We don’t have a bath in our current home but in our last house I used to just give it a quick wipe out with a wet sponge and some all purpose cleaner every night before I’d run DS a bath.

    Because the bath was being used every night it didn’t get a chance to get dusty/dirty.

    I find if you want to give it a deeper clean, gumption works well (you just have to rinse it really well to get rid of the residue).

    the cleaner gives it a good clean every fortnight but i scrub it down before ds uses it for a bath (which is most nights a week esp after daycare). not sure if dh does the same, i hope he does. i have one of those long handled washing up wands with a scourer at the end and just give it a wipe/scrub down as the water runs. it’s usually just dust and hair and a bit of soap scum build up so i like to do it, otherwise ds is sitting in bath water with floaters of dust and hair. which is gross.

    before kids we never used the bath and it would be such a dust bowl. i can’t stand baths, more hassle than they’re worth and i’d be quite happy to have a bathroom without one once the kids outgrow baths and can just shower on their own.

    Spot cleans I just wipe it down with some bathroom cleaner spray and for a proper clean (every week) I use a cream cleanser like Jif.

    It gets used every night by the kids.

    Thanks for all the responses! Looks like I’ll have to change my routine, try some new things and see what works
