AT DC, I moved into an apartment with old bathtub stains that really gross me out. The former resident's bathmat left dark stains on the bottom of the tub. I love taking baths but wouldn't be able to relax with those icky stains. I've tried various bathroom cleaners and none have gotten rid of the stains. Any ideas? I really miss my bath time! Thanks, Sad in the Shower Dear Sad in the Shower, We have some ideas for you below the jump...

We've heard that baking soda, bleach, and vinegar can clean tough bathtub stains. Applying a past of dishwater detergent (let sit for an hour) can also be effective. Readers: any experience with bathtub stain removal? Let's help Sad in the Shower get back her relaxing baths!
