The best time to clean the tub is right after someone has taken a shower or bath, and the room is warm and humid. Get rid of the grime before it has a chance to cake on.
Try this for an easy cleanser—sprinkle baking soda around the tub, then wet a washcloth with distilled white vinegar and scrub, then rinse. If you do this once or twice a week, chances are there will be no need to scrub hard. Plus, you won’t be using harmful chemicals or drain-clogging cleansers. Clean bath tub!!

After the box of baking soda in your fridge or freezer no longer keeps your fridge fresh, you can dump it into your bath tub (I sprinkle a bit into the sink, too), add a bit of water to make a paste and use it as a slightly abrasive scrub for cleaning. Just be sure to rinse well.
(you may want to test a small area to ensure that the baking soda wont scratch the finish of your tub)
Once a week I clean the bathroom, really get in and scrub out the tub, wash all the towels. While I am working I light a relaxing candle to make the room smell delightful and when I have burned off a couple hundred calories cleaning I pour myself a glass of sparkling white grape juice, pour bath salts and treat myself to a bubble bathinstead of my regular exercise.
