Soft scrub is a cream-type cleanser that you squeeze out of a bottle, use a wet rag or sponge, and get to work. This works well on tubs and showers, countertops - among many, many other things. It comes out in a thick white cream, and it doesn't really foam or bubble, it just sort of has an abrasive quality to it that works really great when you use a damp cloth for cleaning. I like to clean my sinks and countertops with this, and that abrasive action helps get the grit off but also somehow manages to be gentle and not cause any scratches. It seems pretty gentle while being amazingly effective. It doesn't put off a really strong toxic smell like some cleaners, yet it really gets deep down and clean. I love this product, probably because I grew up watching my grandma clean with it, and because it really just works! Performance I think it's an excellent product. It's easy to find at most any store, and a little bit goes along way. Somehow it manages to be really tough on stains and dirt, while still being gentle on your bathroom hardware and fixtures. Scent It doesn't have that strong chemical-type smell like so many other cleaners.
