“How do you clean around jacuzzi tub jets? I’ve tried Q-tips, but there is still a reddish line around them.”
There are two things that I would recommend.
1. Cleaning your jacuzzi tub regularly is important. Because I like to use salts and fragrance when I take a bath I usually clean the bathtub every time I use it. However I am not a regular bath taker so if you are–and you don’t use anything extra in the water–I would recommend cleaning the tub as often as you do your shower.
2. Soak the tub and run the jets. How often you do this will depend on how often you use your tub. If you only use it once a month for a nice soak then you only need to do this every few months. However if you are a bath person and use it every day you should do this no less than once a month.
Here’s what you do:
Fill the tub up to right above the jets (maybe 1 1/2″ over) with lukewarm water and then dump in a small container of white vinegar. If you aren’t opposed to using bleach, instead of vinegar, you could dump in a cup of bleach.
Next run the jets. I usually let them run for a few minutes just to make sure the vinegar (or bleach) is stirred up well and to make sure that the water has had time to circulate through the jets.
After you have let the tub soak drain the water and clean it as you normally would with a sponge and Greenworks Natural Bathroom Cleaner. The grime around the jets will wipe right off and your tub will be sparkly clean!
The good news is that this is a very rewarding cleaning tip because once your tub is clean then you can hop on in and take a nice relaxing bath!
