This stain was left from well water after power went out, the tub has a raised design to prevent slipping. The pink color is not on the tub came from photo.
You will have to be gentle when cleaning your acrylic tub and especially when treating stains. Acrylic will scratch.
Here are several methods to clean and remove stains:
Not knowing what your tub is stained with,makes it difficult to suggest what to use. I have had good luck with that bleaching out the stains on our acrylic vanity top with a fresh lemon.
You could also call the manufacturer and see what they suggest.
You can scrub with barkeepers friend but wet and forget shower has been the best product I have found.
Since I don't know what the stain is, try a mixture of vinegar and water 50/50 with a little baking soda sprinkled on it.
Hi Maureen, I really like CLR. I am not sure if it is available where you live but it is great at getting off buildup and removing stains.
Hi Maureen I usually go all natural non chemical with all of my household cleaners but I can't do it in my showers or in our toilets because of our hard water. The most impressive product I've found is called "The Works Toilet Bowl cleaner" Its really hard core stuff but I haven't found anything that it can't take care of.
try a magic eraser and bleach
This may help:
Easy Off No Fume Oven Cleaner in the BLUE can. Spray it on and let it liquefy. Rinse well. May need a little scrubbing. Wear rubber gloves. Works on enamel, porcelain, and fiberglass. And close the door behind you and turn on your exhaust fan this stuff smells!
Bleach and a scrub brush
This has some great tips: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZ9E_QpjxYM
Bleach and a scouring pad would be my first choice.
Another alternative if it will not come clean is to paint it. https://youtu.be/ztn3C9d_PaU
Baking soda can remove hard dirt from the acrylic. For tough stains: First, fill the tub with hot water and vinegar. Allow this soaking mixture to stay for 15 minutes or more to loosen any mildew and scum, then drain the water. Use a damp cloth or sponge to scrub the baking soda into the tub and faucets.
I have had acrylic tubs for very many years in different homes! What sort of stain are you talking about?
I have used baking soda with a damp sponge. The secret is to make it into a paste and let it sit for a bit.
Hi Maureen. Make a paste with one part hydrogen peroxide and two parts baking soda. Put this paste on the stains and allow to stand for an hour. Take a sponge and rub the surface and wait for another few minutes. Then wipe the paste off and wash with clean water. If the stains are still visible, repeat the entire procedure. Good luck Maureen. Merry Christmas.
Hello. I would also suggest a bleaching paste if its routine stains. If its a hardcwater discolorations it might need a lime dissolving method. I find problems with this at my vanity sink stopper. Something to consider- the source of the stains.
my daughter did hers she used this https://amzn.to/3pjMqI0
What have you tried? I'm assuming bleach? Try oxiclean!
I would use Gel Gloss cleaners that are made for acrylic tubs, Walmart carries it as does Amazon.... https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=gel%20gloss%20cleaner%20and%20polish Then put the polish on or use an auto wax that is carnuba wax and polish it to keep it from staining again.
vinegar and blue dawn, spray on....warm the vinegar and then spray on the tube
If it is discolored which they do over time, you can paint them here is info on how to do that

Bon Ami...great gentle product if you can find it.
Another thought is to invest in a rechargeable scrubber. I have one and it has helped with many tasks, especially the tub.
