Advantages: Natural product that is environmentally friendly and smells good
Disadvantages: None that I have found yetn
===HOW DO I FIND THIS? ===
I bought mine from Tesco for £2.94 for the bottle with 680g of cleaner in it. I was attracted to this for two reasons. The first being the rather strange looking pale minty green bottle with its two feet that it stands on which I thought was quirky. Since then I have discovered that the feet are 'ears' that are designed to hold the sponge for cleaning the bath with. My sponge had happily stood beside the previous bottles but is now proudly wedged in the 'ears' of my Tub Scrub bottle. The second thing that attracted me to this product was that it is one of the Method brand range which are kinder to the environment and I do try to do my bit whenever I can to help save our planet.
=== WHAT DOES THIS PRODUCT DO?===
This is a bath and tile cleaner which uses powerful "finely milled marble" as its active cleaning ingredient which sounds such pure quality as an ingredient. We have a plastic bath which seems to scratch very easily and so I am quite careful what I use to clean it with as I don't want to risk damaging it anymore than it already has been damaged by my bracelets and rings! I do now take them all off before I have a bath but I didn't realise what they were doing to the bath until it was too late!
It is a gentle abrasive with a lovely fresh smell of eucalyptus and mint which are fresh and herby. The eucalyptus is also a mild natural disinfectant which is always a plus in bathrooms.
===INGREDIENTS CONTAINED WITHIN THE PRODUCT ===
Milled Marble, Coconut Oil Derived Surfactants, Purified Clay, Natural Thickening Gum, Borax, Eucalyptus Oil, Fragrance Oil Blend, Purified Water, Contains : <5% Nonionic Surfactants, Anionic Surfactants, <1% Perfumes, Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde
=== BENEFITS OF THIS AS OPPOSED TO OTHER BATHROOM CLEANERS ===
This product is advertised as "Future Friendly", it has not been tested on animals and it is biodegradable based on the international standard OECD 301D.
It is non toxic and made from natural ingredients which they say "makes for happy pipes and happy fish".
Not only is the product "Future friendly" but the container is also 100 recyclable and made from 25% recycled plastic.
It also says that the product will make the bathroom smell less like a public swimming pool and more like a spa. Not sure about the smelling like a spa but it certainly smells a lot nicer that other chlorine and chemical cleaners.
The warning on the product description says "Warning may inspire skinny dipping". Well I don't know about you but I do tend to use my bath while wearing no clothes so this is a little tongue in cheek!
It does however smell very pleasantly herbal rather than strongly bleachy which I think is a big plus as i love the herby smell. It smells very like a herbal shampoo that I used to use in Australia bought from a posh hair dresser so i am very impressed.
=== HOW TO USE ===
The Tub scrub cream smells lovely and is a pale cream colour. It's a reasonably thick cream, but not so thick that it can't be squeezed from the up tuned bottle. The milled marble grains are really small and not coarse or rough but they do a good job of removing the soap scrum and tide marks from our bath.
I apply tub scrub to bath cleaning sponge then gently rub the bath tub especially in the areas of most soap scum finelly I rinse it all well . Then as instructed I "park the bottle on the end of the tub as a chic accessory with a built-in sponge holder." I have to say that no-one has yet commented on my 'chic accessory' but there is still time.
=== HEALTH AND SAFETY WARNING ===
IF SWALLOWED SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE IMMEDIATELY AND SHOW THIS CONTAINER OR LABEL.
=== WHERE CAN I BUY TIS AND AT WHAT COST? ===
This product is currently selling in Tesco, B&Q and Homebase for £2.94, which I think is an okay price for a natural, non earth damaging bio degradable bath cleaner.
I really like this bath cleaner as it is environmentally friendly and effective. It works well and it smells nice, gentle and herb like. There is also a very novel bottle with an unusual pair of feet which when up turned becomes a sponge storage slot which while not essential, is certainly one way of keeping the sponge with the cleaner in a neat and tidy way. It is also a reasonable price for a bio degradable, natural, environmentally friendly bath cleaner. The bottle is also a bit different and looks nice in the bathroom as it is a pale subtle minty green with two 'feet' or 'ears' depending on which way up you choose to store the bottle.

Summary: An environmentally friendly product that works and smells good.
