Thrifty Tip - Bathtub Cleaner

While thrift is typically used to refer to saving money or spending money wisely, thrift can apply to any judicious use. Today's use of the word thrift has to do with time. I used to clean my bathtub using foaming tub spray for the entire area, Soft Scrub for the tough spots, and Magic Eraser on the impossible spots. Then I learned about Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber. This handy device consists of a foam handle and disposable cleaning pads that attach in a velcro-like manner. You simply attach the pad to the handle, wet it slightly, and you're good to go. At around $3.00 for a refill pack of 6, they're not the cheapest cleaning item. But one little pad will clean the toughest, nastiest soap scum and mildew in your bathtub, with enough cleaning power leftover to clean your sink. I am able to clean my bathroom quickly without having to apply product, scrub, reapply product, and scrub some more. One good swipe is all it takes to cut through the gunk. I also have more room on my cleaning products shelf, since I don't have to store multiple items for one purpose. One note of caution: since this cleaner works so well, I always wear gloves when I use this, just to be safe. After cleaning, I make sure that I rinse the bathtub very thoroughly, as BB will sometimes drink his bathwater! :(
