Tub Cleaner

I will never know how two teenage boys can dirty a tub so fast but even with all their dirt and grime they leave behind, this cleaner requires less elbow grease than Comet. It expands as it sets so it gets into all the little crevices and the peroxide disinfects too.

I made a lot because it was so dirty, but for regular cleaning, you could probably use half the recipe and have plenty.

Tub Cleaner









1/8 cup lemon juice

4 pound box baking soda

16 oz hydrogen peroxide 3%

Mix baking soda and peroxide together in large bowl, then mix in lemon juice.

You want it to be a thick paste.

Make sure the tub is dry, it will slide off wet walls and sides of tub.

Use your hands and smear it all over. Let set about 15-20 minutes.

Use a spray bottle of peroxide and spray all surface well. It will bubble.

Use a cleaning brush and scrub.

Make sure to rinse well as this causes the shower to be slippery when wet.

    I’ve been looking for crunchy ways to clean my house but the tub is one of the hardest things to do. I can’t wait to try this out! Thank you for sharing.

    Wow! That’s amazing, are you sure that’s the same tub j/k. You really cleaned that tub with lemon juice, baking soda and peroxide. I have always used comet and I hate that stuff. The dust particles get all over and you breathe them in and the tub is always so slippery afterwards. I’m gonna save this recipe and try it next time.

      Yep, just those three products cleaned that nasty tub. It did take a little elbow grease but I think it cleaned better than Comet. I hate that stuff too!
