How do I clean an old fiberglass/plastic shower enclosure?

Answered

I’m in a rental and the shower enclosure is old; vintage fiberglass/plastic material. It has turned “dingy” and I’ve tried many of the home-made cleaners that you have suggested, but nothing seems to work. Don’t want to use bleach in fear of destroying enclosure material. Didn’t want to use abrasive fearing that it will damage finish and make it worse. What are my options beside moving out?

    Hi Jeff, have you tried spraying it down with dawn ultra and water and then letting it sit for a while and then use a magic eraser while the dawn solution is still slightly wet?

    Have you tried CLR or TSP?

      You're welcome. To assess if any product will damage, it is best to use a Small Splotch in a Small unnoticed area, like: Under a Fridge or Oven.

    Or tried using Bar Keeper's friend? It comes in either powder or soft scrub versions. I've found that the powder works for me for most of my dingy stuff. Try a test spot first!
