For many people, taking a bath is absolutely a relaxing and pleasant experience. As a result, it is really important to keep your bathtub clean. To take care of your bathtub, here are some tips for you.
When cleaning the acrylic bathtub, use sponge or flannel, but do not use coarse cloth or scouring pad. Use mild detergents (such as dish detergent) rather than any cleaning agent containing granular objects. Clean the bottom non-slip surface with a soft nylon brush, but don’t scrub with steel balls, wire brushes or abrasive sponges. Also, it will be good to avoid direct sunlight and contact with high temperature cigarette butts.
If you encounter stubborn stains, use a discarded soft-bristled toothbrush dipped in bleach and water to scrub the surface to remove both stains and mold. If you encounter difficult-to-rub stains, you can also use half a lemon dipped in salt to wipe, or you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush to scrub with whitening toothpaste. Turpentine is also very useful at this time. To deal with limescale, the products used to clean the toilet on weekdays are very useful. If you don’t like the pungent smell, you can also use a more natural method of lemon and white vinegar. Do not use detergents with a fading function, especially if your bathtub is colored. To kill mold and fungal disease-causing bacteria, rinse with bleach and hydrogen peroxide and dry immediately.
After the bathtub is installed, remember not to move it privately. If you need to move the bathtub, you should contact a professional. Do not hit the surface with hard objects, causing bumps or scratches. To repair dull or scratched acrylic bathtubs, wipe vigorously with a clean rag mixed with a colorless automatic polishing solution, then apply a layer of colorless protective wax. Do not wax the bottom non-slip surface to prevent slipping.
To get rid of smells and to keep bacteria out, you need to clean the drains regularly. You can use a product specially designed to clean the sewer, pour it into the sewer, and clean it after 5 minutes. Be careful not to use it in metal pipes. If the bathtub is clogged, the first thing you can do is to close the drain valve, and then put an appropriate amount of tap water in the bathtub; place a rubber suction device (for dredging the toilet) on the drain valve; while opening the drain valve, suffocate the basin or the overflow hole of the bathtub; then quickly suck up and down to suck out the dirt or hair and clean it up in time. In the case of serious blockage, you can repeat it several times until it is clear.
Don’t forget to clean the faucet! Use detergent regularly. Before scrubbing the faucet, rinse the surface of the faucet with clean water and dry it with a soft cotton cloth, and then gently wipe it with a neutral detergent to keep the surface clean.
