Gleaming Bathtub, Algebra Needed

FINALLY!!! Ever since we moved into our little cottage on the hill, I've been fighting the battle against soap scum and whatever else coated our bathtub and shower walls. I tried so many things and nothing could get rid of that nasty build-up and back down to the original shower and tub surface. A suggestion from an online acquaintence and a coupon for Ajax did the trick. I bought one of those plastic, no-scratch scouring pads for dishes and no-scratch Ajax and put in some oomph of my own and it WORKED!!

Ok, calling all homeschoolers out there. Do any of you have a DVD of algebra I could borrow (I'll pay shipping.) A CD-Rom won't work...computer's too slow and sick. A VHS won't work...I don't have a VHS player. If so, please e-mail me at scottlass at juno dot com.

I just wanted to mention that I had a similar issue with my tub and I use a scrubbie sponge with a heap of baking soda and a squirt of mild soap (Dr. Bronner's or even dish soap). My tub is cleaner and shinier than it ever was with any other cleaner!!

The best thing I have used on mild soap scum has been a used dryer sheet. I kid you not! It works best if it is dry. I have not used a dryer in years, so I don't do this anymore, but it worked for me for a long time!

Also, you could try your local library for an algebra video. Mine has a small selection of videos on learning English, History, Math, refinishing floors, etc!

Good luck!
