The plastic splash strip under the glass (?) door of our over the bath
shower is looking a bit manky. I have tried to clean it with limit success.
I would like to soak it with Domestos in the bath.
I think the bath is plastic. If I do this, will I damage the bath?
Scrap the old silicone out. All of it. Yeah, I know.
Use meths to clean the area.
Let dry............. 12 hours.
Fill bath half way with water
Use decent silicone, not the quid for a tube shite.
Apply silicone with the Fugi tool. Not with finger stuck in gob as this
introduces bacteria and moisture into the silicone.
Let set for 12 hours.
Okay, you will stink. But the end result is worth it.
I did the above maybe six years ago after two failed repairs not doing it
the right way.
The silicone is as white as the day I applied it, no mould.
The issue here i think is the finish on the bath and how resistant it is to
the chemicals. I don't know the current make up of household bleach, but to
be honest I've never found it much good to clean plastic, just damage it.
the bottle is a particualy sort of plastic, but again, how can we know what
I'd not want to try it unless I had a bath other than my main one that
did not matter to test it on.
