How Do You Clean An Acrylic Tub?
Nowadays, acrylic is a very popular material for making bathtubs because it is relatively inexpensive and can be easily formed into a variety of shapes. Acrylic is also ideal for bathtub construction because it is nonporous, which makes it incredibly easy to clean. To clean your acrylic tub, you can either use a non-abrasive store-bought cleaner, such as Fantastik®, Scrubbing Bubbles®, or mild antibacterial soap. Refrain from using harsh chemical cleaners such as bleach, CLR®, or Lime-A-Way®, as these may damage your tub’s finish. Also, it’s best to avoid using rough sponges, scrubbing pads, or steel wool to clean your tub, as they can all scratch the acrylic surface and may potentially void your tub’s warranty. Instead, use a soft sponge or cotton cloth.
Homeowners who wish to avoid store-bought chemical cleaners can instead use household products such as white vinegar, baking soda, or lemon juice to clean their acrylic tubs. Regardless of which cleaner works best for you, the more frequently you clean your acrylic tub, the easier it will be to keep it looking shiny and new, so wiping it down with a clean, soft cloth at least once a week is recommended.
