I love this post -- You can also *cheat* at cleaning in this fashion by doing what I do: Allow your child a *special treat* to bathe with a bath fizzer. Bath fizzers are made out of almost all baking soda!! I get mine from Cost Plus, because other brands out there will turn you colors... and HAVE turned me and my tub colors.

Thanks for this one! Cleaning the tub is one of my most hated jobs, mostly for having to inhale ajax the whole time!
