Total Time: Half an hour

Yield: 4 cleanings

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Wet the tub or shower with warm water.
  2. Pour some of the baby shampoo onto a damp rag. Rub onto the surface in circles. Rinse often because of the soap buildup on the rag.
  3. Rinse the surface and repeat if necessary. Until surface is clean.
  4. When the surface is clean and dry open can of car wax and take a dry rag rub it into to wax and apply to the surface in circles. Like you wax a car.Work in 2x2 foot areas. Let dry (you can also follow instructions on wax) for several minutes. Take a clean dry cotton rag and buff like you would a car. Repeat until tub or shower is complete.
  5. The car wax makes the soap, shampoo and water bead up and go down the drain instead of sticking to the surface. Repeat as necessary.

Doesn't this make the tub and shower tray dangerously slippery?

I was thinking the same as Paula. I'd be worried that the tub would be dangerously slippery.

DO NOT use this on the bottom of the tub! It will make it slippery! Only use on the walls an sides of the tub or shower unit!

I wash the shower down with a cleaner such as Lysol basin/tub/tile and make sure your grout or caulking is clean. Then do the Turtle wax car polish on it. The sponge that comes with is fine. I don't buff it like you would a car, defeats the process by the number of daily showers you do. Just smooth finish it. DO NOT GET ANY ON THE FLOOR. I have two bath mats in the shower, one on each side or you could put 1 big one in and cut a drain hole in it.

Preference yours.

I also have a window/counter squeegee in the shower that everyone uses when they shut the water off after their showers. My grand children think using the squeegee is the most fun of the shower. It hangs on the utility hook inside the door, so you don't open the door till you squeegee.

Doing bathtubs is much different unless you have huge amounts of safety strips for standing on. A broken hip is not worth the effort.

I have a marble bathtub and even hair conditioner and cream soaps will make the tub slippery. I keep a spray bottle with my vinegar/water mix and spray often...

even while showering, voila - non-slip! I also spray between family showers to make sure that it remains safe - it also disinfects.

Instead of using car wax I use Gel Gloss as recommended by the marble bathtub and surround installers.

I have sand that will not scrub out of the tub. Have tried hot water and Kaboom spray and it's not budging. Any tips?
