Tips for Cleaning Jetted Bathtubs

Cleaning jetted bathtubs takes more care and effort than a regular bathtub, due to the fact that these are made of more delicate materials and are equipped with jets. This type of bathtub does not keep as clean as heated spas. Jetted bathtubs should also be cleaned regularly to optimize performance and to ward off bacteria.


Jetted bathtubs are made from fiberglass and acrylic. These materials can scratch easily. Therefore, you should not use brushes and cleaners that can cause scratching. Opt for a spongue or a soft-bristled brush. Use a disinfecting cleanser that does not scratch surfaces.


After cleaning the inside of the tub, fill the whole tub with water and turn on the jets to help purge germs out. Leave jets on for five to ten minutes. Drain tub. If the bathroom is well ventilated, let air-dry, otherwise wipe down with a clean rag.


Jetted bathtubs should be cleaned at least once a week, to keep germs at bay and to avoid stains. If stubborn stains do occur, use bleach. Read the instructions and take care before turning on jets, as the bleach solution can spread and stain towels and other bathroom accessories.
