How Do You Clean Acrylic Tubs?

To clean an acrylic tub, fill the tub with warm water, add 4 squirts of dish liquid, empty the tub after 30 minutes, wipe away the stains using a sponge sprinkled with baking soda, scrub away any fixtures on the tub with a toothbrush, and then rinse. Polish the tub.

  1. Clear the area, and clean the inside

    Put aside all materials from around the bathtub, clean their bottoms, and if a tub mat is present, remove and wash it clean with dish liquid. Fill the tub with warm water, add about 4 squirts of dish liquid, and let the mixture stay in the tub for 30 minutes to loosen stains. Empty the tub, and clean off the residue with a sponge. In circular motions, gently apply baking soda to any serious spots using the sponge, and repeat the process if necessary. Rinse with clean water.

  2. Wash the outside

    Sprinkle baking soda on a sponge, and use it to wipe away the stains along the rim of the tub, and then rinse. Dampen a sponge with a dish liquid solution, wash the outside surface of the tub, and scour around the deposits on the wall and in corners of the bathtub using a toothbrush. For soap scum build-up, spray with an all-purpose cleaner to soften the deposits. Rinse, and then dry with a clean cloth.

  3. Buff the tub

    Apply car polish onto the tub to make it look new and shiny, and prevent water from reaching the acrylic surface.
