    Oh, I love this method.

    Take a 32 oz empty water bottle and add 5-6 oz blue dawn dish soap then fill to near the top with white vinegar, replace the lcap and give it a mix. poke or slice holes in the cap and spritz it all over your tub. With your dedicated dollar tree broom ( blue bristles and a white handle) brush the tub, let it stay on the surface for 20 or so min. Rinse well. Repeat as often as needed. Keep this broom for this use only, if used elsewhere dirt and particles can get in it and scratch your tub.

    Wet the tub with the shower or spray water on it from a spray bottle. Use what ever cleanser you choose and use a nylon bristle broom to scrub down the sides and bottom and rinse. For stubborn stains around the drain use a cleanser like comet. Comet has bleach in it so it also brightens but let it sit before you rinse to let it do it's job.

    You use a new broom as a scrub brush. It keeps you from having to bend over.

    Hi Marva: I use a new toilet brush to clean my tub. I sit on the floor and scrub the tub and walls with it. It's great for getting around the faucets :) But, you can use a plastic broom, too. The product I use to clean the tub is I make a slurry of baking soda and white vinegar. Let it sit on the tub for about 30 seconds and then scrub and rinse.


    Here's a site that tells about how to clean different stains and stuff:

    Hi Marva, cleaning your bathtub with a broom designated just for that purpose is a real backsaver! Just squirt a bit of Dawn dishwashing liquid into the bottom of the tub, run some hot water and use the broom to scrub around the sides of the interior of the tub. For any stains add a sprinkle of baking soda and scrub with the broom bristles. When clean, just turn the shower on and rinse the entire tub. It's always best to use that particular broom just for your bathtub cleaning.

    Hi Marva, hope this helps you out

    • Squirt the dishwashing liquid around the tub, especially on the grimiest areas. We all seem to acquire a nasty ring-around-the-tub!
    • Briefly turn on the faucet to wet the broom. Use the wet bristles of the broom to work the soap all over the tub and up onto the tile surround. The broom’s bristles are fantastic at cutting through the dirt, and Dawn is great at cutting greasy grime.
    • After working the soap into a lather, let it soak for a few minutes.
    • Now turn on the water, and rinsing the bristles frequently, use them to help rinse all the lather down the drain.
    • You’ll be left with a sparkling clean tub and no pain in your back or knees!

    Actually, I usually buy an extra toliet brush from the Dollar Tree for this purpose. Don't think most brooms are stiff enough.
