Not sure is this is the right forum to ask this, but hoping so. I have a 15 year old jetted "Jacuzzi" type garden tub in our master bath. Noticed grey stains on bottom of tub that would not clean away. I found a couple of tub refinishers in the major city an hour from my small town. One came to look at tub and said tub was faulty from factory. Stains are between layers of fiberglass and was not a candidate for refinishing. since replacement is not an option at this point, any ideas on how I can make the tub look clean again? Plumber and refinisher assure me tub is not leaking...just looks bad. It's a triangular shape on the bottom...no tub mat in that shape I can find. Is there ANY paint treatment I could do myself just to spruce the tub up? I use it nightly and want it to look good again if there is a cosmetic solution. Thanks!
If the pros don't think refinishing is an option, I doubt any paint is going to stand up to any use.
I didn't come up with any cut to size bath mats in a web search. Here is a fairly large one, maybe you could use two and cut it down.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
There used to non-slip decals you apply in a tub. They are probably still available somewhere if you do a search.
But I like Sparkys idea of the bath at better.
a "custom" bathmat would certainly be easier than any refinish job, for sure. I agree that if the pros don't think a paint is good, then I shouldn't either. My bathroom is so lovely otherwise...just desperate I guess. I'll look into the mat idea. Thanks to you all!
We have a tile shower with a plastic base, and it does get dingy after a while. Wife puts some vinegar on a scrubber sponge and then sprinkles baking soda on that. She scrubs with that and it does work well. Also Scrubbing Bubbles foam cleaner works.
