My fiance tasked me with cleaning the bathtub, before tomorrow night.
Well, I made the ultimate error; I accidentally scrubbed one spot a little too hard and revealed to her that the actual stock color of my bathtub is not, in fact, off-white as I'd claimed, but white.
I did some quick mental math and realized I'd just finish scrubbing up the entire tub by tomorrow night if I didn't need time to sleep and my arms wouldn't fall off in the meantime.
So I came up with a way to make it go MUCH faster! I started out making a design for this, but as I got into it, I realized I already had a part on my shelf that was basically the same design... the old gear from this print:
Which didn't work in practice due to my inability to properly hob a bolt. But it would work here.!
Print he gear, get an M8 bolt of appropriate length, and some zip-ties, and one of the scrubbing pads of the style you see here, or possibly one of the metal type.
Put them all in a bag and shake it up until they fall into the proper configuration.
Or, to save time, construct manually to match the attached photos.
Use care in using this tool! You're using a power tool in a place that's normally full of water. Please be sure they do not come together! Also keep an eye on the pad so it doesn't come loose or catch on anything.
I've used this, it works BRILLIANTLY. It works even better with a paste of water and COMET or AJAX-type cleaner.
