I have a white steel tub that was brown, brown when we moved in recently.
Today I tried to get rid of the stain and was 80% effective just using plain
vinegar (4.2%). It just dissolved away so I assumed that a product like CLR
and Lime would finish the job. No such luck. Has anyone had success with
easily available products that will finish my job and get me out of
installing a new tub! Thanks.
Have you tried bleach? Fill the tub above the stain an pour some in, let
There are also rust removes that work very well. If the bleach does not
work, try one before replacing the tub.
I've also found that drain cleaner cleans a lot of nasties from the tub.
If you get the gel type, you can pour it on the stain and the gel will
stay in contact with it longer. Also, a lot of people have had decent
results with those imitation "Mr Clean Eraser" things.
