    The cleaning power of the Pumice!!

    Advertisements
    I kid you not!

    Last night I got to work on the kid's bathtub that's been installed for a year - but NOT USED since I put it in because of the grout and caulk (we were VERY "smart" and used black grout and black caulk and a white tub) - so I used all the things they TELL you to use to clean it - and NOTHING really got it cleaned. Some of it just smeared around adn then dried, again. So the tub's been just YUCK! And after throwing countless hours of scrubbing and a buncha money at it - it never got any cleaner!

    So yesterday I finally got back to it - scrub scrub scrub ... still nothing, of cousre! So I set out to find a new product that "supposedly" would doit for me.

    Nothing.
    Then - at Walmart - after looking at the mineral spirits, super-goo-gone that claims to dissolve grout and caulk and everythign else that i've already tired - Juuust as I'm about to leave with nothing in my hands I saw a small package near the bottom - never seen this one before! A pumice stone that can clean all this stuff? It cost only $1.89 - and I figured *what the heck - I'll try it!*

    So - I got home, thought i was being a total tool for scratching a stone over my tub but whatever! I wet the stone - wet the surface - rub rub rub - HEY!
    LOOK AT THAT - perfectly freaking clean!!

    This stupid little stone really did clean it all off! and without a single scratch to the tub or tile surfaces!


    I cannot believe it!! I WISH I had seen this stupid thing a long freaking time ago - and guess what I'm getting ready to scrub! MY STOVE!!



    Oh - and proving that money doesn't solve everything I've spent more money on vinyl gloves and scuff rags!!

    I would be terrified to put a pumice stone on the stove! It really won't scratch it?
    Needs work.

    WOW... I would be worried about it scratching. Did you try a white eraser Mr. Clean?

    FTC - my stove is a ceramic top - a classic dinosaur I wouldn't attempt to use the pumice stone on a glasstop or stainless survace. But for ceramic-coat sinks, stoves and tubs - hell yeah!

    And my stove is look fabulous, dahlingk.

    I'm sure a classic stove-cleaner would work but I can't breath harsh chemicals - I'm very sensitive - which is why I'm addicted to natural and non-toxic cleaning methods
