This is what I came up with yesterday morning when cleaning my bathroom tub and it worked like a charm! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 -7 drops tea tree oil
  • 6 -7 drops of grapefruit essential oils
  • water, as required
  • comet with bleach disinfectant cleaner


  1. Sprinkle comet over the bath tub as required (I like using less first and then more if necessary).
  2. Add the essential oils now over the bleach.
  3. Using a toilet brush, mix well all over the dirty tub.
  4. Add a little water to mix because the comet will be very dry.
  5. Mix (scrub) well all over the tub, over its curves and edges,etc.
  6. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  7. Wash the comet mixture off with plenty of water until it is sparkling clean and shiny.
  8. Enjoy yourself the next time you step into your tub!

you might want to use baking soda on a fiber glass tub ... instead of comet

I used Honeysuckle oil because I did not have Grapefruit. I may have used a little too much, because although I liked the scent, it was overpowering while I was cleaning. I also don't normally use something as abrasive as comet on my tub (it is fiberglass), so I'm a little concerned about whether this is too abrasive for my particular tub. Liked the idea though!
