Hiding your fiberglass bathtub behind the shower curtain is one way to deal with scuff marks, but it's not a solution. In most cases, scuffs only affect the surface; they're not permanently damaging. Instead of hiring a contractor, remove the scuff marks yourself with products you likely already have on hand.

Things You'll Need

  • Water displacement lubricant
  • Soft cloth
  • Mild abrasive cleanser
  • Sponge

Video of the Day

Spray water displacement lubricant directly on the scuff marks. Allow the spray to sit for a minute or two.

Rub sprayed areas of the fiberglass with a soft cloth. If the scuff marks persist, spray with water displacement lubricant again until the marks come off.

Rinse the fiberglass tub surface. Sprinkle the tub with a mild abrasive cleanser. Scrub with a soft sponge to remove residue and rinse well.

Tips & Warnings

  • Because water displacement lubricant emits fumes, ventilate the bathroom before you start.
  • Water displacement lubricant makes the tub slippery, so don't skip scrubbing the tub afterward.
