Preventing Soap Scum


Now that you have some ideas on how to clean soap scum let's try preventing it.

The first tip to keeping your tub and sink soap scum clean is get it before it builds up, making it harder to get rid of. Once clean, keep it clean.

Right after you have had a shower or bath make sure there is no soap residue lurking around. I take my shower hose and spray all around the tub when I am done. This definitely cuts down on soap scum cleaning.
