Degrease All The Things

I bathe in coconut oil. For real.
I make this bath scrub with 2 parts brown sugar/1 part coconut oil/1 part Dr Bronner's (Almond).
This mix is great for my skin but my acrylic bathtub is a slip and slide of death.
It MUST be de-greased after I use it. On the plus side, the tub is a great testing ground for using various de-greasers.

409-It smells terrible. Fake lemon scent of death.
It does a meh job. Running plain hot water does the same job as this shit.
I breathed some in one day-WTF?!? Listen I huff chemicals on the real and that shit is vile.
It won't even get you high. Leave it on shelf.

Simple Green-once upon a time it was my go to.
They changed up something and it has an odd chemical-ish smell and doesn't clean worth a shit.
Nope nope nope is the nicest thing I can say about this product.

CitraSolv-I make no secret that I love me some CitraSolv.
HOWEVER...it will strip the finish right off some stuff it not diluted properly (this is important) and HOLY ORANGE SCENT.
I love the smell. The hubs-does not.
I would put this in my #1 spot if it scent didn't bother the Mr so much.

'Homemade' degreaser- 1 tsp original blue dawn 1/4c vinegar and water in a spray bottle.
Some people add lemon or orange oil to the mix. It's not required and I don't recommend getting all fancy with Essential Oils if you have pets or allergies and/or don't know wtf you're doing with EOs.
As a de-greaser it does a pretty ok job and is the most cost effective of the bunch.
It also does well as a general cleaner. Highly recommend.

For all of these I sprayed the product into my tub, let it sit 5 minutes and rinsed with hot straight out the tap City of Norfolk water.
