Sometimes life gets so busy that we forget to do basic things around the house. Before we know it dirty dishes, clothes, and dust have piled up and we now have to spend all weekend trying to get it back into shape. One area that might be worse then the other areas is the bathtub.

The bathtub is constantly wet because we use it everyday and there is usually no way to allow it to air out. When water sets somewhere for long periods and is not cleaned on a regular basis it allow mildew to grow. Once mildew starts to grow it can spread quickly to every part of the tub as well as the shower curtain. The longer it sits in the tub the harder it will be to remove it. But it can be done!

Wearing rubber gloves you will need to apply mildew cleaner to every inch of the tub. Let it sit for a few minutes to soak into everything. When cleaning mildew from tubs you will want to start with the top of the walls and slowly work your way down. You can use a sponge for the larger surfaces – but a tooth brush is needed for the cracks.

Make sure to keep the gloves on the entire time because the cleaner can dry out your skin and irritate it. You may also want to use a face mask if you think that the fumes are too much to handle.

Scrub every inch of the tub and use an old toothbrush to work the mildew out of the crack and all of the fixtures. It is going to be harder to clean near the bottom of the tub because this is where most of the water and mildew sits.

Once you have finished cleaning the tub you can rinse it off. Make sure to wipe all of the cleaner and excess mildew from the walls. Afterwards you will want to take down your shower curtain and wash it or buy a new one.
