Fiberglass bathtubs are easy to maintain but, when it comes to cleaning a fiberglass bathtub, you must be careful because they are vulnerable to scratches.
When you clean a fiberglass bathtub, take the following tips into consideration.
Depending upon the cleaning needed, try the following cleaning options.
Apply cleaners gently with a non-abrasive applicator such as a sponge, cloth, or brush made of nylon, polyethylene, or polyester. Never use abrasive cleaners of any type on a fiberglass surface. Absolutely avoid abrasive powders and pads.
This video shows a great way to make a “miracle” cleaning solution for bathtubs, tile, and more. The solution is a no-brainer. It’s just equal parts of Dawn® dishwashing soap and distilled white vinegar. You mix together Dawn® and vinegar in a spray bottle. Then you spray the mixture on the surfaces and wipe it off with soft cloth or sponge.
Other cleaning options are:
• Liquid dishwashing soap or liquid laundry detergent.
• All-purpose household cleaners, such as liquid 409 or similar liquid bathroom cleaner
• Mild to moderate alkali solutions such as mixtures of baking soda with warm water, or a diluted TSP (trisodium phosphate) substitute in warm water (make sure it’s fully dissolved so it doesn’t scratch the surface).
For stubborn areas, such as bathtub rings, you can make a paste out of baking soda and vinegar. Wet down the tub’s surface and gently rub the paste onto it with a sponge, soft nylon brush, or cloth.
Always rinse the cleaned surface thoroughly to make sure no cleaning residue remains.
