Cleaning and maintenance

How to look after your acrylic bathtub properly!

household remedies protect the environment

Rinse your acrylic bathtub with hot water after every bath and dry the surface with a cotton cloth. Acrylic bathtubs are naturally resistant to different kinds of dirt due to the material. Usually, simple wiping with a soft cloth or sponge is enough to clean it. To remove greasy or oily deposits, it is best to use washing-up liquid, liquid detergent or soft soap. A paste made from water, tartar and hydrogen peroxide helps in extreme cases.

Under no circumstances should scouring powder, abrasive cloths, scouring sponges and microfibre cloths be used on your acrylic bath. Otherwise, this results in extremely fine scratches that attract dirt and limestone deposits.

If the tap water in your region is very hard, then remove limestone residues carefully with vinegar or citric acid diluted in water. Rubbing with lemon peel also results in a lustrous shine.

However, if your acrylic bathtub is scratched, then we recommend treating the scratches with our acrylic polishing kit. Our repair set is also available for minor damage to the acrylic surface.

Our favourite household remedies

Household remedies safeguard the environment and clean your acrylic bath without chemicals just as effectively as caustic cleaners.

Lemons, vinegar, and tartaric acid are effective against limescale and discolouration

Acids such as vinegar and citric acid are ideal in dealing with limescale. Dilute vinegar and other household acids with water for careful cleaning. Half a lemon, rubbed into the surface, is useful against stubborn stains. Rinsing thoroughly is self-explanatory, acrylic bathtubs in particular have a sensitive surface.

Baking powder, the versatile cure-all

Exceptional cleaning results can be achieved with baking powder: Sprinkle plenty of powder on a damp acrylic bathtub and leave it overnight. Then gently spread the layer of baking powder with a soft cloth or sponge before rinsing thoroughly. Together with vinegar, baking powder can even remove rust that sometimes can build up around the drain. Baking powder also helps combat unpleasant odours. Mix some baking powder and vinegar together and shake the mixture into the drain. Don’t be worried if you hear gurgling in the pipe - vinegar makes the baking powder foam up. Rinse with boiling water afterwards.
