    How to Clean a jacuzzi Tub with Dish Detergent

  1. 1

    Fill your jacuzzi tub with warm water. Add 2 tsp of low-foam powdered dish detergent, such as Cascade, and 1/2 cup of household bleach to the water.

  2. 2

    Turn on your jacuzzi tub, running the jets for 5 to 10 minutes. This allows the cleaning agents to run thoroughly through the pipes.

  3. 3

    Allow the water and detergents to sit for 1 hour if you have tough stains. This step is not necessary otherwise.

  4. 4

    Drain your jacuzzi tub and refill with cold water. Circulate the cold water for 5 minutes.

  5. 5

    Drain the jacuzzi tub completely. Clean your jacuzzi tub using this method once a month to keep germs and stains at bay.

Tips and warnings

  • Avoid using foamy dish detergents when cleaning your tub because these will fill your jacuzzi with bubbles.
  • After each use, fill the jacuzzi with fresh water, run the jets for 10 minutes, and completely drain the tub.
  • Use this method for cleaning jacuzzi tubs at hotels you may stay at.
  • Unclean jacuzzi tubs can harbour germs responsible for gastroenteritis, urinary tract infections, toxic shock, respiratory tract infections and many other health problems.
