Big deep bathtubs are wonderful for soaking in and enjoying. Cleaning that tub however is quite a challenge. You can however clean your extra deep bathtub by following a few simple steps.
Things You'll Need
- All-purpose bathroom cleaner
- Mildew remover
- Paper towels
- Long handled cleaning tool
- Scrub brush with handle
The first thing you need to do to clean an extra deep bathtub is to purchase the correct tools to allow you to reach the furthest parts of the tub. Effective products include the rounded sponge mop and a window squeegee with a sponge attached.
Spray down the tub with your all-purpose bathroom cleaner, and leave it for about 5 minutes. Using your long handled bathtub cleaning tool (sponge mop), scrub the bottom and sides of the tub well. Rinse the tub using your long handled mop to rinse the sides of the tub the furthest away from you.
If any residue remains on the bathtub, spray it again with cleaner and wait a few minutes. Then use the long handles scrub brush to attach the stubborn areas of the tub. Rinse the tub again.
If there is mildew in your grout around the tub, spray a small amount of milder remover, allow it to sit for 10 minutes and rinse it clean.
