Which Products Should I Use to Clean a Bath Fitter® Bathtub?
Bathroom remodeling can be very labor-intensive, and traditional materials like tile can be hard to clean afterward.
That's why many people are going with a bathroom remodeler like Bath Fitter®. Bath Fitter® will install a custom acrylic bathtub, shower or surround in one day. Not only is the installation quick, but cleaning and maintaining the finished surface doesn't require a lot of scrubbing or hard work.
Approved Products for Bath Fitter® Bathtubs
Bath Fitter® bath tubs can be cleaned with most common household cleaners. Approved products are listed on the company's website. The products listed include products with mild abrasives, like Ajax and Soft Scrub, as well as very mild cleansers like Windex and Joy dishwashing liquid. The product you use should depend on your cleaning preferences.
It is important to use only the products listed on the Bath Fitter® list, and to use them only as the label prescribes. Bath Fitter® tests each product according to the label's instructions.
Any harsh chemicals, disinfectants or solvents can cause permanent damage to the acrylic surface.
How to Clean a Bath Fitter® Tub
Acrylic tubs are non-porous. This means the dirt has nowhere to go but on the surface. For most daily cleaning, dishwashing detergent and a soft sponge should be sufficient to clean the bathtub surface. If the tub becomes stained, use a mild or non-abrasive product with bleach.
If the tub becomes scratched, dirt can get trapped in the scratch and be hard to clean out. Use a liquid polishing compound to remove most small scratches. For larger scratches, wet-sand with 600-grit or finer sandpaper, then polish with liquid polishing compound.
