How to Clean a Cast-Iron Clawfoot Tub

Cast-iron clawfoot tubs add authentic Victorian era elegance to bathrooms and provide hours of relaxation. Porcelain glaze is often bonded to the iron for protection against stains and scratches, as well as to provide a durable and smooth finish. Properly maintaining these luxurious tubs allows them to last for decades. Since cast-iron tubs accumulate soap scum, dirt and stains with each use, they require frequent cleaning. Only use certain supplies for cleaning a cast-iron clawfoot tub to prevent scratching and dulling the finish.

1 Dampen a microfiber cloth with warm water from the tub's faucet. Wipe the inside and outside of the tub with the cloth.

2 Pour 1/4 cup of liquid laundry detergent into a plastic cleaning bucket. Add 1 gallon of warm water to the bucket to create a mild, non-abrasive solution.

3 Fill another plastic cleaning bucket with only water. Dampen a soft-nylon brush in the soapy solution.

4 Scrub the entire inside surface of the tub with the solution, using the nylon brush. Rinse the brush frequently in the bucket of water to prevent applying dirty solution to the tub.

5 Dampen a clean, microfiber cloth with warm water. Wipe the inside of the tub with the cloth to rinse away the soapy solution.

6 Clean the outside of the tub, using the same techniques as for the inside of the tub. Wipe down the inside and outside of the tub with a microfiber towel.
