Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to tell you a little bit about what to use to clean your bathtub. It really depends a lot on what type of bathtub you have. If it's a smooth surface bathtub like this any all purpose cleaner will work. There's no miracle bathroom cleaner. No matter what the commercials tell you, there is no miracle bathtub cleaner. The best thing you can use to clean your bathtub seriously is elbow grease. If you have tile or something like that along the walls, you may want to use something a little more gritty and use a sponge like this that has a rough side to it. You know something to be a little more abrasive to clean the grout. Just go over the entire bathtub and the good thing is if you use a green cleaner, it won't leave a residue and you won't have to rinse it off because it's non-toxic, it's not going to be harmful to your baby after you clean him, or after you clean the tub. It's not going be harmful to your pet, it's not going to burn your skin, things like that. Anything that you really don't have to rinse off afterwards is the easiest, because it's really difficult to rinse the bathtub walls, you know. So, that's it. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is what you should use to clean your bathtub.
