Household Tip #36-Quick Cleaning

Washing Away Soap Scum

I use dishwashing detergent on any stubborn stain, whether it’s a burnt pan or grease stain on the stove.  Dishwashing detergent is super-strong and is made to wash away grease on your dishes!  It can tackle anything. 

Here’s another example how dishwashing detergent will solve a problem quickly! 

What You Will Need:


Dishwashing Detergent


Old rag

1)      Clear away all shampoo bottles, bars of soap, etc. from tub. 

2)      Squirt about 2 T worth of detergent on most affected areas.  Let sit for about 10 minutes.

3)      Using a damp rag, scrub detergent away.  Rinse several times.

4)      Pour two capfuls of bleach over affected areas and let sit.

5)      Scrub with damp rag.

6)      Voila!

No excuses for a dingy tub during your next Open House!
