How To Clean a Jet Tub

I've tried soft scrub with works but is alot of work scrubbing

I've used bleach and just filled the tub with cold water and let the jets run; haven't noticed weather this helps or not

I've used comet witch I don't use anymore on anything because it leaves a residue

My tub isn't super filthy. Just looking for something that if I stay on top of things, it won't be such a workout just to clean my tub.

Re: How To Clean a Jet Tub

  • To clean the surface of my jet tub I use Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Cleaner (cuts through scum like nobody's business and does 90% of the work for you). To clean my jets I fill the tub with hot water, pour in 2 cups of bleach, and run the jets for about 20 minues. Then I empty it, refill with cold water and run it for 10 minutes. I haven't had any issues with scum or mildew in the jets.
  • There is a product at Home Depot called something like "Whirl-Out" that you can put in a tub filled with water and run the jets. We have heard that bleach is bad for the internal seals of the jets, although does kill the germies. It wasnt too pricey and has been awesome as far as getting any potential gunk out. Scrubbing Bubbles worked great too!
  • To clean the jets, I use powdered dishwasher detergent. I've read a ton about how well it cleans, while being safe & cheap! :)

    My BLOG:

    Me: 41, Hubby: 34, TTC since Jan 2010. Dx: DOR due to advanced maternal age. Also: Hypothyroidism (100mcg Levothyroxin). Positive for MTHFR, Factor V Leiden (FaBB tab), and Fragile X (on DH side). Also taking pre-natal vitamins and Vitamin D

    One natural PG 9/27/11; mc at 8wks (tried to naturally expel) Cytotec: 1/20/12 (unpleasant)

    First RE visit: 8/8/12, Saline Sonogram: 8/28/12(4cm unknown mass in upper left of uterus) 2nd Saline Sonogram: 10/2/12 (mass disappeared!) IVF injection class: 10/11/12

    IVF #1: 10/17/12 Baseline: FSH- 9.4, Estrogen- 24, LH- 3.7, Progesterone- 0.3 The u/s showed 6 follicles in my right ovary & 9 in my left. Rx: 150 Bravelle & 150 Menopur SQ nightly. 10/21/12: Add Ganirelix SQ every morning

    ER 10/28/12: 13 Retreived. 7 Mature. 6 Fertilized. 5 Made it to PGS.

    ET 11/2/12: CANCELED. All 5 came back from PGS as having "severe abnormalities." Devastated.

    Begged RE for back-to-back IVFs; Started Provera 11/2/12. AF said FU and came anyway, destroying any chance for a Dec IVF.

    I've maxed out my lifetime fertility insurance, so this next cycle is likely our last chance. I can barely breathe, waiting to get through this process, hoping for my take-home-baby.

    IVF #2: 1/7/13 Baseline: FSH- 8.8, 4 follicles in my right ovary & 6 in my left. Rx: 150 Bravelle & 150 Menopur SQ nightly. 1/11/13: Add Ganirelix SQ every morning. hCG Trigger 1/16/13

    ER 1/18/13: 9 Retrieved. 5 Mature. 5 Fertilized. 2 Made it to PGS.

    ET 1/23/13: CANCELED. All embryos (he even sent the ones not growing) came back from PGS as having "multiple severe abnormalities."

    No DE or adoption for us, FIRM. RE recommends we stop trying and focus on living childless, due to the repeated extremely poor quality of my eggs. I don't even know what to do with that.
  • good info. never thought to do this, although i hardly use the jets
