Question Stubborn shower floor stains....

...trying to find an effective chemical to get rid of brownish-gray stains on the bottom of a shower. They are mostly around the drain, and on the sides of the shower. The shower is a one piece fiberglass shell. I have only tried basic household cleaners (Comet). Thanks for any help.

If you can't feed 100, feed just one.

I use a baking soda and borax mix. I use a green scratchie and I scrub it when the shower is dry

Isn't there a product called CLR that does that as well? How effective is that for those kinds of stains?

You are very welcome. I'm glad it worked! I've tried CLR but in my opinion (and I'm sure people disagree) but I don't care for CLR. It doesn't seem to work on anything I've wanted it to. (Kinda like my kids--)

Totally agree on both... In addition, kids are ever worse than the CLR in doing what I want them to...

I have never used it before, and probably will not waste my money on it now. Thank you for the review And kids can work, they just need the proper motivation lol, you know, candy and video games, or cell phones and cars if they are older lol.

I am so glad to see this, as I have a customer with a shower that I cant get rid of the stains and I feel like I am not cleaning it properly!
I will try the baking soda and borax to see if it works!!! Thanks!

before trying any stain removal technique, you must try it on a small (preferably unhidden) area.

in your case try some baking soda or vinegar next time
