No more hazardous chemicals – clean the bathtub with these ingredients for a shiny clean result

Like the toilet, the bathtub can be one of the less pleasant areas that needs to be cleaned in the home. It gets dirty so quickly and often discoloration and lime deposits build up – getting rid of all those ugly spots can be such a tough job that requires both time and energy.

Even worse, we often resort to using expensive chemicals to scrub the bathtub which are not good for us to inhale

But imagine if all these issues could be solved with a grapefruit? It may sound like madness, but when I saw the end result, I just had to share. All thanks to this smart mom!

You may have heard that various citrus fruits can act as effective and environmentally friendly cleaning agents. But what many do not think about is that instead of mixing fruit juice in a spray bottle, it’s easier to use the fruit as a sponge.

And while lemon and vinegar seem to be the more recommended natural cleaners, there’s nothing like the smell of fresh grapefruit.

What you need is:

1 grapefruit

1/4 cup coarse kosher salt

Then do the following:

1. Cut your grapefruit in half. Then sprinkle salt on both halves.

2. Rinse the bathtub and sprinkle the rest of the salt on the bottom of the bathtub.

3. Now take one grapefruit half and use it as a sponge to scrub the bathtub. As you’ll quickly see, it gives a surprisingly good result.
