This post likely contains affiliate links.

This is fun cleaning tip! If you want a clean home, but really hate cleaning or at least don't want to do it often, this is a smart question to ask before buying anything!

Between these bursts of cleaning and fix-it energy, I didn't think much about the messes I frequently made, ...

This post was sponsored by Mr. Clean thanks to iConnect. All opinions and love of cleanliness are my own. When we moved into our apartment the bathtub was a not very clean bathtub, and proved difficult to get sparkling. I am gonna assume one of the previous tenants had a bathmat they used, which had lots of little circle disks underneath it, which has damaged the tub and left light little circles that prove hard to get pearly white again.The joys of apartment living. My husband has used various products, as have I, hoping we'll get a sparkling clean bathtub yet. My latest product to wage war against the grime bathtub was a Mr. ...
