Using Oven Cleaner for Soap Scum

There are times that I have a problem with scum in my bathroom, whether it is on my sink, tub or toilet. Some of the bathroom cleaners do not work that well. Well as I was cleaning my stove with the spray on stove cleaner, I thought "Well, if it removes dried on food, couldn't it remove scum?" I gave it a go and sure enough it worked. I left it on for about 5 to 10 minutes, cleaned it off and my bathroom was left shining. Plus the fumes are not as harsh as using other cleaners such as Ajax or Clorox.

I would be afraid it would remove the finish of the sink or tub.

Cannot recommend it enough, use CLR it also removes hard water deposits.

I use the low odor oven cleaner on my shower doors to remove soap scum that won't come off with any other product that I have tried.

Using Oven Cleaner for Soap Scum

Thanks for the heads up. That sounds like a great idea. I live in a very old apartment and can't get my bathtub clean for anything. I think I have tried just about everything so this couldn't hurt. Thanks again.
