We recently had to drain the Soft Tub Hot Tub for the first time - we want to clean the inside of the tub before refilling - I have a manual that references cleaning the inside of the lid with a mild dishwashing soap mix - but nothing about cleaning the inside of the tub itself.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

baking soda +salt+oil solution is the best option for cleaning inside the tub and in soap there are fillers which do not clean the tub so istead to use soap you should use it .it really work...

I highly recommend that you run a spa cleaner through the system each time you drain to clean the "innards" as well. Sea Klear System Flush is the brand I use, but there are others. It's cheap enough--costs around $12 for a bottle that will treat my 400-gallon spa twice. So depending on the size of your tub you may get more mileage.

The stuff works great, though. Cleans out the body oils and gunk that invariably accumulates inside the plumbing, and it's easy to use. Just pour it in your full spa before draining the old water, run the jets for 30 minutes or so, then drain. As it's draining, I use a toilet brush to clean the inside surfaces. Rinse, refill your spa, and you're ready to go!

I've been using a citrus based cleaner called Crystal Clean. The first time I used it it came with a natural hot tub start up kit. This stuff is great. Cleans everything inside the plumbing and the walls of the tub. You can get it from a company online called Clarity for Spas. It's around $20 bucks I think.

I have a regular hot tub, but I use Baqua Spa cleaner with a soft car wash brush.
