Clawfoot tubs have a classic, antique look.

Reglazing a tub can get rid of old cracks and dings, giving your tub a whole new look. Once you have your tub reglazed, clean it carefully so that you don't damage the enamel. The best way to do this is by using natural cleaning products that are effective yet gentle on the surface of your tub. These natural cleaners are inexpensive and won't irritate your eyes, skin or respiratory system.


Step 1

Spray the surface of the tub with a solution composed of equal parts warm water and white vinegar.

Step 2

Sprinkle a light dusting of baking soda over the tub's surfaces.

Step 3

Wet a nylon cleaning sponge with white vinegar and wipe out the tub. The vinegar will dissolve soap scum and other debris, and the baking soda will act as a gentle abrasive.

Step 4

Rinse out the tub. Wipe it dry if you wish using a lint free cloth.
