Most likely the bleach caused the stains. Many times when the product, in this case bleach, is poured from the bottle there is a residue of bleach that will run down the outside of the bottle and collect on the bottom of the bottle. If the bottle is not wiped carefully the bleach will settle under the bottle and cause staining when placed on a surface.

I have found the best thing is to use a pumice stone fro cleaning the bathtub.this works well and is very inexpensive and works well.

Saturate the stains with hydrogen peroxide. Leave it on the stains, until the stains disappear, then rinse well with plain water.

Chlorine, the active chemical in bleach, is an oxidizer. Rust is oxidation. Chlorine causes rust to appear much faster than mere water based moisture.
