I let our hot tub go during the winter and have a build up of yellow mold and grime on the headrests and tub. It looks like a daunting task to clean. I have drained the water and want to tackle a major cleanup, but would like some suggestions as to how to best tackle this job. Thanks.

Please don't use comet in your hot tub to clean it. Comet is abrasive & will scratch your fiberglass or acrylic tub!
I have a 250 gallon hot tub that I am trying to go pretty much chemical free. I am using a ozonator and mineral stick. I do the PH balance, but am confused as to what else I need to use. When I use a testing kit, it shows that I need chlorine and acid. Are there any household products that I can use instead of the chemicals? I also do not know how to figure the ratio of the products to my 250 gallon hot tub.
I dont see how you are going to keep it clean without using chlorine
Cleaning hot tub naturally.
Rinse your filter once a week.
Here is a link to the earth friendly solution program.
Circulation cycle systems : you should be using 4 to 8 hours a day.
It is cheaper to run the filtration system then to add more chemicals.
Use ozanators they stop the growth of bacteria and are earth friendly.
Make sure you have a spa cover.
Go to your local spa store there is 5 products you will need that are earth friendly.
yes, I did read that you need chlorine, possibly just once a week depending on usage. However, I have been using non-cholorine after each use. Is that the same thing? Sorry to be so ignorant, but this is new to me. thank you
What are the best household chemicals that I can use for my hot tub to keep the water clean?

There are no household chemicals that will keep it clean and also be safe for use. Your best bet is to use recommended products from a pool and spa store/supplier.
