    It's Probably fiberglass. I would start with scrubbing bubbles. Spray, let sit for a while, then lightly scrub with nylon scrubby (white or pink). Rinse and repeat immediately. If this doesn't work, fill tub deep enough to cover stain. Add a few tablespoons bleach. Let soak for an hour

    What sort of stains are they? Are they from water marks? They are very difficult to shift. Maybe try a paste of bi.-carb soda and place on stains and see what happens. If they stains are really bad, what I did years ago when I had an enamel bathtub that had seen better days, was get a tradesman to put over the old tub, an 'inner bath' ie fitted perfectly over the old tub. Check with your local bathroom specialists, and see if this option is available to you. There is also the option of having it re-coated (spray painted). Good luck.

      I was extremely happy with the inner bath. It fitted perfectly. Should not be too expensive. Just a matter of getting quotes. I was not 'thrilled' with the painting of the old bath, and surrounding wall tiles (there were tiny 'pin holes') and around the plug hole, after a while, the paint coating started to peel, and water seeped under the paint. So that's why I got the inner bath. The spray painting was done in 1990!! So hopefully, if you go with this option, the application has improved.

    I'm totally agree with Gabrielle Falk, bicarbonate soda is the best option as I've also tried this & it really works
