4 tips for cleaning and maintaining acrylic showers and tubs

As any homeowner will tell you, it can be challenging to keep acrylic bathtubs and acrylic showers clean on a regular basis. If you have a large family, these items are frequently used in the bathroom, meaning there’s a good chance of their becoming dirty in a short amount of time. That being said, preventative measures can go a long way – cleaning your shower or tub just five minutes each day can prevent a dreaded chore at the end of the week. Here are some tips for cleaning and maintaining your acrylic tubs and showers.

1. Give it a rinsing
If all you have time to do each day is give your shower a rinse, Apartment Therapy stated that this is better than nothing

! Look for a bathroom shower cleaner that can be sprayed onto your tub and tiles and then washed away once it’s had time to work its magic. This is a solution you can consider during the work week when you don’t have time to scrub.

2. Attack rust when you see it
TLC noted that while rust can be an eyesore, most commercial cleaners can do a good job of removing it effectively. Simply use the cleaner according to the instructions on the bottle, then wipe the rust away. Remember – rust can eventually corrode your metal fixtures, meaning it’s best to eliminate it sooner rather than later.

3. Use a nylon net or ball for tub rings
Bathtub rings are just as unsightly as rust, but don’t let them discourage you from taking a bath! Instead, pick up a nylon net or ball to scrub away the ring and make your tub look brand new.

4. Create a homemade cleaning solution
A homemade cleaning solution composed of vinegar, baking soda, ammonia and hot water can help you get rid of the debris that’s toughest to remove. Simply add this mixture to a spray bottle and apply it to the problem areas. Then, use a sponge and wipe away the dirt, mildew, mold and other scum to make your bathroom feel like new again.

While it can be challenging to maintain your shower and tub over time, these tips can help you make the task easier at home.
