When this happens, you don’t always need to invest in a brand new acrylic bathtub. There is an easier solution for you here. As always you should test the method you are going to use first on a small part of the bath that cannot be seen to make sure it is going to give a satisfactory result with your kind of bath.
You should, in particular, be wary of using these methods on baths that have been painted as they will need to be repainted after any of these techniques are used except perhaps the bath rubber which you might just get away with if you are careful.
1. Use a Bath Rubber Bath rubbers work miracles on very superficial scratches and scuffs or when removing paint from the surface of a bath. You use a bath rubber just like as you’d use a pencil rubber for erasing pencil on paper.
On very slight scratches and scuffs the bath rubbers rough surface will remove the damage and leave a nice shiny surface that needs no further finishing. If you have more serious damage to your bath you may want to use one of the other methods.
2. Using Abrasive Polish You can use abrasive polish to remove scratches from the surface of the bath. A good one is by the manufacturer Farecla. They make different grades. For light scuffs use Farecla G3 Paste Compound which is a medium cut polishing compound that will make light work of light scuffs. You can use this method for other types of bathtubs.
For heavier scuff type damage to the surface of the bath you might need to start with a coarser cut compound such as Farecla G7 and then finish with G3. Polishing compounds can remove quite serious scuffs from your bath whilst still being easy to get a good finish with.
Whenever you use polishing compounds o your bath pay close attention to safety instructions, avoid inhaling the fumes from polishing compounds and never breath in dust from dried compound, compound in this condition should be thrown out.
