Cleaning a Textured Tub

I have fiberglass tubs that are a "pebbled" texture. Dirt and stains get ground into the surface and I can't get them out. I've tried everything, Magic Eraser (too much work, plus it takes about 10 to do one tub), fiberglass cleaner, etc. Any suggestions?

Try this - it works great:

Shower Rinse

32 oz bottle

1C White Vinegar

2T generic dishwasher rinse agent

Fill bottle with water.

Join the club, I have the same problem. The best solution I have found is to take a stiff bristled brush, and your favorite cleaner and apply good old elbow grease. My in-laws all use the cleaner that hangs on the shower head and you push the button when you want it to spray cleaner in your shower/tub. I spent three weeks with them and was very impressed with the results. Their shower stayed sparkling clean in a humid climate, south Texas. Thanks for the recipe bacaa1 I am going to try it.

I used regular gel type toilet bowl cleaner. I poured in into the tub, used a broom to spread and "scrub", let it sit for quite a while (overnight actually) and the next day when I rinsed...it was clean!

I have found that gel toilet bowl cleaner has worked when nothing else has.

I use a pressurized steamer. Tedious, but works great.
