Hot Tub Buying Guide


How to remove mildew from hot tubs

Your hot tub has mildew. Maybe the mildew has appeared on the cover, maybe it's on the headrests or maybe it's even on the tub itself. What to do? Your first step is to clean the affected area well. Then you need to be sure to up your game on your routine maintenance so as to keep the mildew at bay.

To clean the mildew off the surface it has attacked, you can use regular household cleaning products. The same spray that you would use in your bathroom or kitchen will work and since you will be rinsing it very well at the end of your cleaning, these should cause no harm to the tub. You will also need a sponge and maybe even a small brush like an old toothbrush for tiny crevices. It's great to keep those old toothbrushes under the sink for jobs just like this. You will want to wear gloves and maybe even a mask depending on the strength of the cleanser - inhaling bleach is never a good idea. Spray your mildewed surface, allow the cleanser to sit for a short bit - just a minute or so, then wipe clean. Depending on the extent of the mildew you may been to scrub harder and repeat. Be sure to rinse well with clean water. If the household cleanser you have chosen, doesn't seem up to the job, try another that contains some bleach. Or try some of the eraser pads. They seem to do a great job when combined with a little elbow grease.

If the mildew is on the cover, allow the cover to dry completely before returning it to the tub. If the mildew is on the headrests, you will want to let them dry out as well before refilling the tub and using it. Be sure to keep the headrests wiped down regularly to avoid future mildew.

Once you have dealt with the mildew, please be sure to keep your chemicals balanced and be sure to add cleaning the cover and the headrests to your regular maintenance routine. It really is much more pleasant to prevent mildew than to deal with scrubbing it away.

Keep your tub clean and you are more likely to enjoy it!!
