To save yourself from this work in the future, wipe the tub with a washcloth after each use.
Step 5 Prepare spray bottle Fill the spray bottle with equal parts water and white vinegar.
Step 6 Spray with vinegar Spray the solution onto another cloth, and wipe the area where the ring was.
Step 7 Rinse tub Rinse the tub with water, making sure to clean the parts of the tub that the tap and showerhead don’t reach.
Step 8 Wipe dry Wipe your tub dry and invite over your friends to marvel at its lack of dirt and dead skin.
