One can buy a product from Homax that is a tub refinishing kit. I am told it works very well but you have to have good ventilation. You prep it, paint it, and let it dry. The interior of my tub was in reasonably good condition so I just had to paint the outside to go with the colors I used elsewhere in the bath. I used a satin finish. This is not the best photo, but you can get an idea of what it would look like.

How do you restore the color on a white tub? I had a new tub installed last summer and recently ruined the color when I sprayed an off brand cleaner on it. Now it has discoloration from the cleaner. I tried bleach and CLR, but nothing has worked so far.

After stripping the tub, I have read that it should be resealed. What is the right product for this and where do I get it?
