Clean your acrylic bathtub with almost any household cleaner. (garden tub image by Leticia Wilson from

Acrylic bathtubs are a durable, versatile option for any bathroom. Because they're made of one solid piece of material, acrylic tubs retain their colour even when the outer coating is damaged. The nonporous material repels dirt and enables the use of many different cleaning products including mild soap, bleach and all-purpose cleaner.

  1. 1

    Spray the acrylic bathtub with an all-purpose cleaner or bleach spray. If you're working with bleach, open a door or window for ventilation.

  2. 2

    Wipe the acrylic bathtub with a cloth or sponge to remove any dirt or soap scum. Use the scrubbing side of a sponge to clean any tough stains.

  3. 3

    Rinse the acrylic bathtub with clean water. Dry it with a towel to prevent water spots.

Tips and warnings

  • Avoid products that react with plastic, such as acetone, paint thinner and foaming bathroom cleaners.
