Soft Scrub with Bleach

How do you clean the burner caps on a gas range? I’m not talking about that fresh drop of oil that can be easily wiped off with a paper towel. I mean that burnt on gunk that just won’t come off. For me, the magic combination is a Dobie cleaning pad and Soft Scrub. It still requires some effort, but I have been able to tackle most stains that plain detergent and baking powder haven’t been able to clean up. However, this part confuses me. What’s up with Soft Scrub with Bleach? The whole point of using Soft Scrub (I thought) was because you wanted to avoid using a harsher cleanser. However, once you toss a caustic cleaning substance like bleach into the mix, is Soft Scrub still a safe and mild cleanser?

    Advise if Softscrub is safe to use on a fiberglass whirlpool tub.

  • In regards to using Soft Scrub on fiberglass surfaces in the bathroom, the Soft Scrub FAQ says “we … recommend that you use the product sparingly and rub it on gently with a damp sponge.”

    Best bet would be to read the manual that came with the tub (if you had it installed) or find it online from the manufacturer’s website.
