Method Tub Scrub Bath Cleaner
Advantages: Cleans even super-tough grime
Disadvantages: Your elbow, and its grease, will be required
Lets discuss my bath. No, really, lets. I live in an Edinburgh tenement flat, with a bathroom that lacks any natural light and a landlord that lacks any common sense and won't replace a clapped-out old bath suite. So the bath is old, and the bath gets grimy. Actually, that's being a little polite: the bath seems to suck up dirt from not only the daily showers we have standing in it, but from the flats next door, the street outside, and the whole city... in fact, the whole universe. I'd go so far as to say that the stain on your shirt from where you dropped your sauce down your front will end up in my bath tomorrow.
So cleaning has become something of a challenge. Conventional cleaners take one look at our bathroom and run out of the flat, screaming in horror. "No-one can clean that, it's impossible!" they cry, as they shimmy down the drainpipe. In the years Before Method (BM), the only real candidate for the job was Cillit Bang. Oh, Cillit Bang. The only cleaner you'll actually get embarrassed buying in a shop, the only cleaner that has been known to make kids hyperactive just by having them look at the colour of it and the only cleaner that doesn't consider a job truly done until three layers of skin have been removed from your hands. Also the only cleaner to smell so atrocious that it reliably gave me an asthma attack every time I cleaned the bath so, as you'll imagine, it wasn't a brilliant option.
And then, along came Method. I started with the surface spray, because it had a pretty bottle. I moved on to the tub scrub not only for the beautifully designed bottle (it has a cloth holder. A CLOTH HOLDER! I didn't know I needed that, but it turns out that I did.) but for the promise of powerful "finely milled marble", which somehow manages to make scrubbing sound sophisticated. With a giant quirt of Method, and a little bit of elbow grease, the bath became cleaner than it has been since before we moved in - tide and shower mat marks gone, and all skin left entirely in place.
The scent is fresh, and not too overpowering; more like bath salts than bath cleaner. There was a slightly worrying moment when I realised that there were white stripes on my trousers where the scrub had touched the fabric, but unlike those from bleach, the marks faded and the trousers now look as good as... well, as good as bathroom scrubbing trousers can ever look!
I admit it: this is no miracle worker. You need that elbow grease, and it's not lying when it calls it a tub *scrub*. But it shifts the grime better than most cleaners on the market, and without the insane chemical overload that will leave you hallucinating. It's not particularly cheap, either, at around £4 for 680g, but it lasts for months of scrubbing and looks much better sitting next to the bath than even the gym-honed physique of Mr Muscle...
Summary: Cleans the house *and* looks good!
