Bathtub, shower stalls, and doors are quickly and easily cleaned using an SOS pad. They eliminate a lot of elbow grease, but cut through grime and soap scum. No scrubbing or soaking. Even the off brand pads work just as well as the name brand. Just rub the SOS pad over the entire tub surface and rinse clean with the shower head or use a cup to shower it off.

How can I clean built up soap scum from a fiberglass tub and shower?
By JO SHAO from Atlanta, GA
I have two solutions for you. The first one is to use regular hand sanitizer on a miracle sponge. The other one is a product called Totally Awesome. You can get it at the Dollar Tree and Dollar General. This product is something else. I dont delute it at all. I even used it to remove old varnish on the base boards in my house. It is a wonderful product. A best kept secret is what I say. Hope this helps. ~Janette~
While I am a BIG fan of LA's Totally Awesome I tried it as my first choice, knowing how well their products work in the automotive trade. I found it to be totally worthless on soap scum. I was actually shocked because I love their products.. Just my experience.
I also tried it in my bathroom and found it didn't work for me either. I also love their products but not for soap scum.
