How to clean a bathtub

Jodi from Greenwood, South Carolina had been fighting the stains in her bathtub for four years until she tried CLR® Brilliant Bath.

Stubborn tub stains can make a beautiful bathroom look grimy and a bath or shower feel anything but refreshing. So when a cabinet of cleaning products can't scrub the scum away and you're tired of feeling like you're flushing money down the toilet, take a cue from Jodi.

“I just wanted to let you know that your CLR Brilliant Bath cleaner is awesome! I’ve tried so many different products over the last 4 years since I moved into my house, but nothing would get the stains out of my bathtub! Today, I used an entire bottle, but look at the difference!”

Here's how she did it and how you can, too.

How to Clean a Bathtub

using CLR Brilliant Bath

  • Put on rubber cleaning gloves
  • Remove all items from the tub (toys, mats, loofahs, etc.)
  • Spray CLR Brilliant Bath directly on the bathtub's surface
  • Allow the foam to sit for 2 minutes
  • Wipe the surface with a clean, damp sponge or cloth
  • Rinse with cold water 
    (Do not let the solution sit on any surface for more than 2 minutes)
  • If the stain persists, repeat the process
Always read label instructions before use.

Scrub More than the Tub

What's great about CLR Brilliant Bath is that it's not just for bathtubs. This multipurpose, multi-surface cleaner takes on calcium, lime, soap buildup and dirt on sinks, showers, toilets, tiles, chrome fixtures and stainless steel. It's the right product for any bath or kitchen cleaning task. But if you're like Jodi and you just can't get your tub clean, we're here to help.

Effective and Safe

CLR Brilliant Bath does not contain any phosphates, ammonia or bleach. Instead, we use a proprietary blend of ingredients, which is more environmentally safe and healthier than conventional cleaning formulas.
