Refinishing Porcelin tub??

I live in a older home that has a porcelin tub (i think). It is very dull and not shiny, and impossible to get totally clean. I had a landlord one time who used something to refinish a tub like this. I believe she just painted it on. Very easy and it worked. Does anybody know what this product is or have any suggestions?

Thanks!

I don't know of any that are do it yourself projects and I know that the chemicals they use and equipment is pretty heavy duty.

You can call a tub refinisher and get a tub done for around 200-300.

although not the answer you were looking for I hope it helps

There are finishes that can be sprayed on, however as diego stated, I would recommend allowing a professional to do the job, from what I have seen the job requires protective gear and a steady hand
