How to descale the bathtub

Prepare to unleash your strength against the enemy: the accumulation of dirt and limescale.
Forget about dirt build-up right now and relive the glory of your bathtub with these simple steps for thorough descaling. First, arm yourself with baking soda, your natural ally against stubborn dirt. Spread it generously over the surface of the tub and leave it for half an hour for the best results.

Now, get your trusty white vinegar, the real power-up of the whole operation. Gently pour the vinegar over the areas with limescale and enjoy the spectacle of this effervescent mixture and the dirt surrendering. With a non-abrasive sponge, gently spread the magic of vinegar in every corner and over the entire surface of the tub.

The steel used in taps, for example, is a different material and therefore requires different care and treatment, which is why we advise you to learn more about it in our guide on how to remove limescale from taps.

The final touch? Rinse everything thoroughly and admire the change! Now you can dive into a world of carefree relaxation, because you have breathed new life into your relaxation spot.

And remember, cleanliness is a constant battle, so make sure your tub stays clean!

  2. Use cleaner after bathing: once a week, run a spray of non-abrasive cleaner over the surface of the bathtub. Leave it for a few minutes, and then rinse with warm water. This keeps stains and soap build-up at bay for a long time
  3. Towel it off after towelling off: yes, a towel can play an important role! After a bath, dry the tub with a clean towel. This prevents water stains and helps prevent mineral deposits
  4. Maximum prevention: use a non-slip mat when bathing. This not only provides a secure grip, but also helps prevent scratches and damage to the surface of the bathtub.
  5. Never ignore stains: deal with stains as soon as you notice them. It may seem trivial, but quick action prevents stains from setting and becoming more difficult to remove.

Always remember, consistency is the key. With these tips, your bathtub will remain a constant source of serenity and comfort, always ready to welcome you to a paradise of cleanliness and freshness.
