How To Keep Your Bathtub Clean With Little Effort

Always Rinse

When you’re done with your shower, or giving the kids a bath, rinse the whole tub down. Every time. Let the water run as you finish your shower – after you’re done rinsing off soap or shampoo from your body. And turn on the shower for 30 seconds after everyone is out of the tub. Take a quick look and make sure the water is running clear – no soap suds, bubbles or hair.
