Fiberglass is often used in new bathroom installations, like bathtubs and shower stalls. It is lighter than porcelain and easier to install because it does not require caulking or grout. Unfortunately, it is also more fragile and easy to scratch. If you find that your fiberglass shower stall or bathtub has accumulated soap scum and mildew, you need to remove it without the use of common abrasive cleaners or sponges. Read on to find out how to clean fiberglass bathroom surfaces.
1.Open all the windows in your bathroom to create a well-ventilated cleaning area.
2.Remove tough or dark stains with nail polish remover or paint thinner. This is useful for oil-based stains, adhesives, iodine and tar.
3.Mix a solution of baking soda and warm water. Add enough water to make a paste.
4.Wet the surfaces of the tub or stall, if they are not wet already.
5.Rub the paste all over the surfaces of the stall or tub with a soft sponge. Use a nylon brush to get into crevices or seams.
6.Scrub the surfaces thoroughly.
7.Rinse well, making sure that no residue from a cleaning agent remains.
8.Dry the area with soft cloths.
