Need Help with Sheetrock Cleaning Problems

The sheetrock people got sheetrock mud in my bathtub. What is the best way to remove it? Tried SoftScrub but it doesn't make a dent.

Also, what is the best way to remove sheetrock dust from floors?

Finally . . . how do I remove sheetrock mud from clothing? Any hope or do I just throw out the clothes?

I agree!!!

I'm suprised they didn't make an effort to cover things up but then not all pros are professional

Joint compound is water soluble, so it should soften up and be removed by using water. If they used hot mud [setting compounds] it will be lot more difficult to remove. Drywall dust is best swept or vacumned up and then mop up the remaining residue.

Joint compound will come out of the clothes in the washer but you might want to try to hand clean them first to keep the bulk of it out of your washer.
