    What finish? Porcelain or fiberglass?

    fill the tub with water with bleach added. Also there are powdered cleaning agents that might specifically address this problem.

    A pumice stone can get off stubborn hard water stains.

    If your tub is acrylic or fiberglass and the stain has not come out with Softscrub nor any other cleaners: it’s permeated the plastic.

    Time to re-coat the whole thing with a Coating System- like Rustoleum’s.

    If its really cruddy you can use Easy Off Fume-Free Oven Cleaner in the blue can and use a Magic Eraser to get just about anything off...

    I have disabled clients whose tubs are a mess and I use Dollar Tree Awesome Orange in the half gallon which I pour down the sides of the tub, let it sit and scrub off with a long-handled brush.

    Wear gloves and for the EasyOff be sure to open window and turn on the fan
