    What is your tub made of, it makes a difference in how you'd remove a tub ring?

    Is it acrylic, ceramic, porcelain to name a few?

    Lysol Power bathroom cleaner in a blue trigger spray bottle is great.

    You can make a scrub from hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.

    Is the ring made of calcium build up? The only thing I've found tough enough to take out the calcium that builds up in our toilets and tubs here is called The Works Toilet Bowl cleaner.

    Not specifying the material it IS made of. You are saying TUB and also not sure if it is a bathtub or a tub for other uses. Bathtubs are porcelain or fiberglass type so saying a metal tub leads us to think metal covered with porcelain bathtub. Please clarify.

    If you can't clean the ring away with comet go chemical on it and use Easy Off Oven Cleaner in the blue can.

    Use Easy Off oven cleaner in the Blue can. Works on porcelain, enamel and fiberglass. Spray it on, let it liquefy, and rinse well.

    Is it soap scum or more of a mineral deposit? If it's minerals - vinegar will help! Also try Iron Out in case it's iron: https://amzn.to/3t8jtSc

    We have very hard water and the soap scum in the tub was like concrete! Two things work for me. The first is filling the tub with hot water and several scoops or pods of Oxiclean (the water will look cloudy when you have enough put in). Mix it in by swirling it around. Then I either let it sit all day or overnight. The water will be cold so just let it go down the drain when you're ready to scrub. There will be white residue from the Oxiclean. That's good, because the next step is to scrub out the tub with a microfiber cloth and a magic eraser. The Oxiclean will help. I usually scrub the sides first and then the bottom. It should start coming right off. The other thing I use is Scrubbing Bubbles in between deep cleans. Cover all the scum and let it sit for ten minutes. Scrub with a microfiber cloth and/or a magic eraser. Rinse. Mine is an acrylic tub, but, I use the same method on my white porcelain sink and it works on that, too.

  • Try a mixture of vinegar and dawn dish soap 50/50 in a spray bottle. Spray it on and let it sit for a bit and work. Scrub with a plastic scrubber.

    Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide both contain natural compounds and can effectively and safely remove stubborn bathtub stains such as rings. Use a mixture of 2 parts baking soda and 1 part peroxide. Spread the solution along the entire bathtub ring and scrub after half an hour.

  • Can you specify what is your tub made of? Cause if it is made of porcelaiin lysol power bathroom cleaner.
