When it comes to cleaning a bathtub made of acrylic material, there is a right way and a wrong way. Using the proper cleaning supplies and non-abrasive cloths will keep your tub looking new for a long time. However, if you use caustic cleaners or scratchy materials, you could do permanent damage. The simplest way is to just wet a soft cloth or sponge with antibacterial dish soap and use it to scrub the entire tub. Rinse the tub to completely remove the dirt and soap. You can use a mild antibacterial soap that you'd use for hand washing your dishes. This is gentle enough to regularly use on your acrylic tub.

  • Give it a quick rinse after each use.
  • Spray it down with a gentle cleanser each week.
  • Scrub the entire tub each month.
  • Remove stains as necessary.
Use these non-abrasive cleaners

We recommend that you clean your acrylic bathing with non-abrasive soaps and cleaners, such as:

  • Dishwashing detergent
  • Power Bathroom Cleaner
  • CLR® Bath & Kitchen® Cleaner
  • Formula 409® All-Purpose Cleaner
  • Iron Out® Rust Stain Remover

When it’s time to clean, always use a terry cloth towel, soft cloth or sponge to avoid scratching the acrylic surface. Don’t use abrasive scrubbing pads, steel wool or sponges; it will cause permanent damage to the acrylic material. If you use a drain cleaner or clog remover, be sure to rinse thoroughly with water so no product is left standing near the drain.

Some chemicals and cleaners may deteriorate acrylic surfaces, causing cracks and, potentially, property damage. To avoid this, don’t use cleaning products that state on their label that they are not suitable for use on Acrylic, ABS, Polystyrene or Plastic. Be sure to check the label of any product before you apply it to the surface; it’s easier to avoid damage than to try to remedy it.
