Try Magic Eraser or Barkeepers Friend.

If your shower is plastic the damage may be permanent.

If it is a composite material you can try a little Simply Blue Dawn Dish soap or plain Tide and let it sit for an hour or so and then use a clean sponge or cotton rag to lightly rub it out.

This may be difficult to remove - if at all.
You may be able to lighten the stain.
Try using blue Dawn - let sit for an hour and then use soft cloth to rub and rinse.

You do not say what type of material the tub is made of so you'll have to be careful and not use any abrasive product just in case it would do further damage.

Some people have used baking soda made into a paste - let sit for a hour or so and gently rub and rinse.

Also, some have suggested using a white toothpaste - same as using baking soda.

Please read a little from these sites so you'll know what not to use.
