Easy Cleaning Tips for Your Acrylic BathJanuary 23, 2018
The great thing about an acrylic bath is that acrylic is not only beautiful, it’s a dream to keep clean. Here at Tennessee Thermal, our Acrylic Baths can stand the test of time. Acrylic is a non-porous material that is extremely durable. This means your bath will never peel, crack or chip. It also means that your bath will be mold and mildew resistant. Plus, because its color is throughout the material, it is stain and fade resistant as well. You will never have to worry about an ugly bath again!
Now, acrylic baths have strong surfaces, but as with anything, it needs to be treated with care. Cleaning Acrylic baths can be simple, but it is very important that you are careful about what cleaning materials you use. As a basic rule, go ahead and toss out any cleansers that contain harsh chemicals. Even using just one harsh chemical can seriously damage your acrylic bath. Harsh chemicals and acrylic do not mix. Using a harsh product can damage the surface of your tub, making it extremely dull and lackluster.
The simplest way to clean an acrylic bath is to use a soft sponge and antibacterial dish soap. This is cheap, easy and very effective. Simply wet a soft sponge with water and apply a small amount of dish soap to your sponge. If you do this about once a week you will never have to scrub hard to clean your tub again! Just wipe down with a soft towel and you’re done! Within seconds, your bath will be just as shiny and beautiful as the day it was installed!
Extra Tip: Always avoid abrasive sponges or wire brushes! If it’s not soft, do not use it!
If you would like to use a cleanser a little stronger than dish soap and water, you can use a 50/50 Vinegar-water solution. Wipe with a soft sponge and dry with a soft towel. As you can see, cleaning your Acrylic bath is easy and inexpensive. Remember, there is no need to waste your money on expensive cleaners. If you follow our tips, your bath will be sparkling for many years to come.
