Bathtub Liner Cleaning and Tips for Maintenance

For normal everyday cleaning of your bathtub liner, we suggest the use of a mild soap and water, with a soft wash cloth. Use of scouring pads or abrasive cleansers will dull the bathtub liner surface. Should you wish to use a product not listed below, test on a small area in the corner of the skirt before applying to the entire bathtub liner. Always review individual cleansers’ instructions and rinse thoroughly after cleaning.

Recommended Cleaner for Bathtub Liner

We recommend using Dawn dish soap and water, Formula 409, or X-IT. Vinegar and water may also be used to soften water minerals. If you require a disinfectant, you may use Clorox Bleach diluted with water to sanitize the enclosure.

Do not use:
Original Clean Shower, Clean Shower for Plastic Showers and Glass, Soft Scrub, Dow disinfectant cleaner, Lysol disinfectant cleaner, acetone, Lestoil, ammonia, fingernail polish remover, aerosol cleaners, or scouring pads.

Use of the chemicals will cause a dull surface and/or an easily recognizable chemical crack. This will void your product warranty.

There is no need to use abrasive cleaners. Abrasive cleaners dull the gloss over a period of years. In extreme cases where the recommended cleaners do not work, use a Chore Boy or 3M Sponge pad. Make sure you only use the ones recommended for Teflon Surfaces.

Recommended Drain Cleaner for Bathtub Liner 

Liquid drain cleaners are recommended over powders and/or crystal. However, when using liquid drain cleaning agents, bail the standing water out of the bathtub and remove the drain plug. Use a funnel to prevent spills and apply the chemicals directly down the drain. Always make certain that chemicals do not come in contact with the acrylic surface. Use drain cleaners sparingly, so that they do not boil out and attack the acrylic surface.

How to Removal a Standard Drain Plug

Occasionally your bathtub drain may slow down due to hair, etc., in the cross bars. In order to remove the standard drain plug, you must:

  1. Push it down in the closed position
  2. Turn the knob counter-clockwise, and remove it. Under the knob there is a stationary brass peg;
  3. Turn the peg counter-clockwise using a pair of pliers.
  4. When you remove the peg, the drain plug will also come out.
  5. Remove any obstacles from the crossbars.
