Tackle It Tuesday #126

Hello ladies! It’s Lisa, the Apron Queen– your resident tackler. Welcome to the CLR Tackle It Tuesday!

Tackle your housework with CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner today and you’ll be entered to win one of the three prize packs, which each includes $100, from CLR! (For more details about today’s contest, you can revisit our post, Tackle To Win???.)

I even tied my apron on and tackled my own bathroom with CLR! Now, the directions on the bottle state Wear household rubber gloves. So, I picked up a pair at the store and I just have to share a photo of them with you.

The Apron Queen - Woman in an Apron

Are those gloves just the best, or what?! Hot pink kitchen gloves with an enormous cuff decorated in huge pink polka dots!

I’ll tell you a little secret. Houswework is a little bit funner when you’re wearing hot pink kitchen gloves! And wearing a pink polka dot apron to boot too!

Seriously, I need to make housework as much fun as I can. Because I’ve got some major issues to tackle in my bathroom. Take a look at this actual untouched photograph of my poor bathtub…

I apologize if I scared anyone. I know it’s not even Halloween yet!

I’m actually a bit embarassed to have to show it to ya’ll. But, I’m trying to keep it real and honest.

Obviously, my bathtub has not had a good scrubbing for quite some time. While I’m not having too much trouble with calcium, lime or hard water- as you can see, there is some serious soap scum and dirt build up.

CLR Bath & Kitchen to the rescue…

I gave my bathtub a decent scrub with CLR Bath & Kitchen.

Then, I stood back and had a good look at it. And I decided that it looked 10x better than before.

But, it still wasn’t quite clean. So, I read the directions a little closer. And I realized I was supposed to let the CLR soak in for 2-3 minutes.

Oops! Let’s give that another try…

Ta Da! Much better!

After using CLR Bath & Kitchen

I am very pleased with the results from CLR. In fact, I thought no one else would notice.

But, are you ready for this? My husband noticed. Immediately!

That is some serious and powerful stuff if my husband walks in the bathroom and says “Wow. What did you do to the bath tub?”

Thanks CLR Bath & Kitchen!

    I LOVED the CLR! It’s amazing how easy it was to use and how well it cleaned.

    I love your apron too 😉

    btw…I only added my link on the clr, but it looks like it might have shown up on both somehow.

    Love the gloves! That’s exactly what I need, an up to the elbow version, superb, also probably quite a good idea to wear when you’re using chemicals like that.

  3. says

    My gloves were green for this one, but I do love the pink ones you have on! I also tackled a tub, a toilet and a sink.. and a shower. It didn’t take that long either. I felt like a domestic rock star.

    I thought that you had snuck into my home, taken a picture of my tub and posted it here on the internet. I thought only my tub got that dirty. I have to clean it four or five times a week to kepp it from getting grimy. Such hard work. I have my tackle up. I hope that you’ll come by to visit.

  5. says

    Wow! This was only the first. The first in a long string of tackles. I liked CLR and as a bonus, the tackle inspired Mr. Man to buy all sorts of stuff!
    Count me in!

    Hi Apron Queen! I haven’t tried CLR, but plan to now! Hey, sorry I entered my post in the wrong Mr. Linky. Go ahead and delete it from the top one if you want. I promise I’ll do better next time! Have a great day!

    I didn’t think the product was all that amazing either, but I was glad that it got me to tackle some cleaning that was desperately needed in the bathroom.

  8. says

    I hated to be the “party pooper” in the group but CLR didn’t do anything for me except regular cleaning. I thought it would but I did not get “extreme” results as some others did. It did clean though but more like any other regular bath and kitchen cleaner.

  9. says

    Oops. I accidentally added my link under the CLR one. I added it to the non-one, but if you could take me off the CLR linky that would be great. Sorry!

  10. says

    First, thank you for sending the CLR, postage free! I was so excited to get it in the mail, I used it that day. Then, I tackled today anyway!

    This was a great tackle, because it let me get so many things done, all under one guise! The CLR itself did great on some things, not so much on others (check my blog, I used it on various things). Overall, this was a fun way to get my self in gear and things cleaned up.

    I used my CLR Bath and Kitchen to clean my bathtub…I let it soak in for 3 minutes(maybe 5) and it worked so wonderfully!! I was happy. Tomorrow I’m trying it on my hubby’s NASTY shower!

  12. says

    I tackled my bathroom and the toilet today with CLR and I must say I was quite impressed. My quest for a good bathroom cleaner has officially ended.
