    I am wondering if the color of your bathtub is a color you don't like. It looks really clean in this picture! Your shower door metal looks immaculate! I had a bathtub that was an almond beige color. I hated it after 25 years! At the time we built our house that was the popular color to install! (and so were the avocado green kitchen appliances like a stove and fridge   ) I replaced it with a white bath tub and shower enclosure because I couldn't stand it anymore!

    The Works. It’s $1 and one needs to wear long gloves and turn in the fan 30 minutes before starting.

    use a nylon scrubber.

    The Works is the best! I use the toilet bowl cleaner to clean the water residue from the sides of my fish tank. I rinse it off quickly and thoroughly and the tank looks brand new. You can also use it to clean your shower head. Just take shower head apart and put in dish of The Works toilet bowl cleaner for a couple minutes, rinse well and you got a new shower head. As for Cleaning a porcelain bathtub. DO NOT USE CLOROX BLEACH and let set. Your tub will be stained to look like a mud wrestling pit.

    this might seem trite but it could be a matter of changing the bulbs in your lighting or sometimes just cleaning the bulb

      Hi Peyton,

      No, your suggestion is not trivial at all. Simply switching conventional incandescent bulbs to LED, or installing an integrated LED light fixture, can have huge impacts to the perceived individual colors in a room.
