is already siting in your tub…I kid you not. I discovered it the other day!
Lets start from the beginning shall we?
Those of you that have been to my house have most likely seen the atrociousness that is my bathtub. It kind of made me a tad faint the day we first looked at this house and I looked in the tub. The bottom of it has no enamel anymore and it was stained a shade very near to black.
I’ve soaked that tub in a bunch of different things, trying to get the ugliness to not be so ugly. I don’t care much about it seeing it WILL be replaced when my husband decides to get around to it. I usually take a SOS pad to it and that at least makes it easy to clean…but the bottom is always black.
SO here’s where it gets exciting. The other day Ikey and I had finished in the shower and we left it a mess…I think I took him out in a hurry cuz he was mad or I was just lazy…whatever the case, a lone shampoo bottle lay on the bottom of the tub, leaking slowly.
The next day when I went to shower I noticed that the bottom of my tub had a clean spot…like a non black spot…in the shape of the shampoo ooze. That night I tried another spot and let it sit and washed it away…another spotless area that used to be almost black…k not really…greyish brownish….GROSS….but now clean.
So that night I got to it. I put a nice layer of shampoo all over my tub and left it there for almost 24 hours and when I turned on the shower to rinse it off, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The bottom of my tub is clean….the sides are so shiny that I can almost see myself in it. This is ONE CLEAN TUB! It doesn’t look clean until you wash it all away.
I’ve taken everything to that tub!!! Shampoo (specifically Rusk) seriously made it spotless, the next best thing was an sos pad which causes me to sweat and grunt and get sore elbows. This took me 3 minutes from start to finish…well plus the 24 hour waiting period.
So, I’m wondering if cheap shampoos would work. Those of you that subject your hair to such awful things such as drug store shampoo should try it in your tub and see if it gets it clean. I kinda doubt it works as well because drug store shampoo is way watered down…then thickened with salt…neither of those things are helpful in this matter. But their PH is higher and they also have stronger soap agents in them (because they’re cheap and they don’t actually care about your hair BTW…the plastic in the conditioner is what makes you think your hair feels healthy and soft…yes it’s plastic).
K I totally went off on a tangent there….sorry.
Anyway, please try it and tell me how it worked and what kind of shampoo you used. I don’t mind using my Rusk because I got a gallon of it for 15 bucks during a mega sale at the warehouse I shop at *sigh* I love having my hairdressing license ha ha.
I’m pretty sure this works so well because the shampoo is a gel that stays put for a very long time, it’s doesn’t have a lot of water in it so it’s more concentrated soap.
I swear this works, and it’s super super easy…there’s nothing better out there I assure you!! Try it!!
In other news….I have cute kids!!
Anyway, I must GO!! AHHHH we’re leaving to go to my mom’s in like an hour and I haven’t started packing. Dangit I suck!!
