We have a downstairs bathtub that has been unused for the
last 7 years. The collected dust/dirt will come off with
elbow grease. However, there are suction cup marks on the
floor of the tub. What's the easiest way to get them off?

Not knowing the materials, not much can be said, however...
If there was rubber in the suction cups, the sulfer may have reacted
with tub and that would be a permanent stain. Try a tub/tile
cleaner such as the product with foaming bubbles. Avoid abrasives,
even mildly abrasive products, as these can make future cleaning more
difficult by destroying the glossy finish.
I've seen posts from people who have had good results with those Mr.
Clean eraser thing on bathtubs. I don't know, though, if they used them
on suction marks. Maybe worth a try; I don't think they could hurt.

My tub is 30+ years old and had some yellowish stain on the bottom
that no cleaner I'd found, including Ajax, would take off. Then I
tried CLR bath & kitchen cleaner and with a little rubbing it came
back to pure white.
