Q: I just bought an acrylic tub … what is the best way to maintain it?

A: Here are some do’s and don’ts to help prolong the sparkling finish of your acrylic tub.

• Don’t clean with any abrasive material such as brillo pad or hard sponge or brush. Since the surface is non-porous, there should not be a need for anything stronger.
• Don’t use any abrasive soaps or cleaning agents, such as Goof–Off, scrubbing bubbles, acetone or lacquer thinner or Windex.

• Do clean with any non-abrasive soap, or dish-washing detergent liquid soap.
• If necessary to remove a stain, you may use Fantastico or Formula 409.
• Do polish and protect your tub by applying a layer of Gel-Gloss. This will also remove fine scratches. If you have deeper scratches, they can be removed by giving it a light sanding with 600-grit sandpaper and then fine polish with Gel-Gloss.

Q: Should I get a faucet with a hand shower even if I have a separate shower stall?

A: Yes, a hand shower not only will help rinse off any bath foam or soap, but is also a handy tool for cleaning your tub.
