How to clean and restore shine to a fibreglass bath

Updated February 21, 2017

One of the lightest and most economical materials used to make baths is fibreglass. Fibreglass is easy to clean, but also is capable of being scratched if you use the wrong cleaning products or tools. Clean your fibreglass bath regularly in order to keep it sanitary and shining. Remove dirt, grime and soap scum from a fibreglass bath using inexpensive, ordinary household products that will bring your bath to a shine and won't irritate your skin or respiratory system with harsh chemicals.

Pour undiluted white vinegar into a clean, empty spray bottle.

Spray all of your bath's surfaces, including cracks, crevices and hardware. Let the vinegar stay on the bath for about 30 minutes.

Wet a cleaning sponge with vinegar.

Sprinkle baking soda onto the bath's surfaces and use the wet sponge to scrub it in gently. The combination of the vinegar's cleaning and disinfecting properties, along with the mild abrasiveness of the baking soda, will clean your bath thoroughly and bring it back to a shine.

Rinse the bath well to remove any remaining baking soda.
