    The Works from the dollar store works well on hard water. Lime Away or CLR too.

    If there is iron in the water, use C-L-R, it gets the calcium, lime, and rust. If people before you used abrasive cleaners, you are stuck with what you have. Otherwise, baking soda works great on the regular tub grime.

    Bar keepers friend. Make a paste and use a sponge with a rough side. It takes elbow grease, but you can do it.

    I have had good luck using scrubbing bubbles cleaner. I spray and leave on for about 10 minutes then scrub down it works when someone has not wiped the tub down on a daily basis, it gets the lime and deposits off quicker than any CLR cleaner I've ever used.

    The only thing that really works is using a combination of the BRAND name DAWN dishwashing liquid in the dark blue and vinegar. I use a 2 cup dishwashing liquid to 1 cup white vinegar mixture. Do not leave on hardware. But do soak those plastic showers and tubs and all the glass doors. Then, wait about 30 mins. Get into the tub/shower with waterproof shoes, and a rag on your bathroom floor for when you step out, , and begin to rinse with hot water and be sure to dry off with a clean rag. TO really finish it off ....squirt off the glass doors with wndow cleaner and a rag as well as the hardware. This may take a few applications, if the soap scum build up has been let go for any period of time. I have used this on newly installed plastic showers and glass doors as well as to help out friends with older fixtures. EXCELLENT RESULTS. BUT you must clean out consistently to maintain a fresh shower and tub.
