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.

We often hear questions from our Columbus, Ohio customers about how our bathtub liners work. We answer some of those questions below.
Do I have to remove my old tub?
No. We will be fitting the new acrylic liner into your existing tub for a snug and solid fit. We are the only company that offers over 650 molds dating back to the early 1900’s. With our computer assisted software we ensure your bathtub liner is an ideal match to your existing tub.
How long does installing one tubliner take?
The installation time for one tubliner is just one day! Compare that to the cost and time it would take to replace your existing tub or shower.
Will I be able to use my tub the same day?
We recommend not using the new bathtub until the next day to allow proper sealing of all areas in the installation.
Will my plumbing be affected?
During installation, if you have a local water shut-off we will utilize this to allow the rest of your home to maintain normal water pressure. If there is no local shut-off valve for your bath area, your home water may be off for a few hours during the installation.
Can you repair water damage on my bath walls during the installation?
Yes. We can repair drywall damage as needed. A cost estimate will be based on the total area needing to be repaired.
