  • 1). Comet, scrub like crazy with rubber cleaning gloves. or 2). Baking Soda and a couple drops of dawn dish washing liquid mixed might also work - still have to scrub like crazy. or 3).Course salt mixed with powered laundry soap. 4) Anything that is abrasive.
    If your sensitive to chemicals make sure to vent the room well or talk someone else into scrubbing it for you....now thats a great idea, dont you think? LOL!

  • I also have a hard time with chemicals, but I have found that Kaboom works well for me and it doesn't bother my
    Asthma as other chemicals have....
    Baking soda paste may help also.... use a soft cloth with the paste and rub into the stain.... rinse and do over as needed...

  • If the baking soda doesn't budge it (and it's a porcelain tub, not acrilyc, you can go to a hardware store and buy emory cloth. It's like very, very fine sandpaper. You use it to gently sand away a very fine layer of tub to remove the stain. You can only use it a few times in the life of a tub, so be careful!
