Acrylic Bathtubs: Proper Cleaning and Maintenance

Modern bathroom interior with ceramic bathtub and white framed poster on wall.

Acrylic bathtubs are among the most popular bathing enclosures for homeowners across the nation, thanks to their combination of durability, customizable designs, and low-maintenance convenience. In fact, many homeowners choose an acrylic tub enclosure for the convenience factor alone, as this can save tons of time over the years. While acrylic tubs are easy to clean and maintain, especially compared to other types of bathing enclosures, it’s still important to understand proper cleaning and maintenance requirements so that you can maximize the lifespan of your acrylic bathtub.

What Cleaning Solutions Should You Use on an Acrylic Tub?

As a nonporous material, acrylic is great for wet areas of the bathroom. It doesn’t absorb water or attract mold and mildew growth. It also doesn’t crack, warp, or discolor over the years. However, using the wrong cleaning chemicals can cause problems with your tub. It’s best to use non-abrasive cleansers when cleaning your tub. The good news is that most household cleaning chemicals will be just fine for your acrylic tub as well. Standard kitchen and bath cleaners or dishwashing detergent are all great options.

When cleaning your acrylic bathtub, you’ll want to ensure you don’t scratch the surface of the tub. A cloth towel or sponge can be used to wipe down all of the surfaces. You don’t want to use abrasive scrubbing pads that can scratch the surface and damage your acrylic tub. Because of the smooth, nonporous surface, you likely won’t have to worry about any heavy scrubbing the way you would with tile grout lines. This is especially true when you clean your bathtub regularly, preventing any dirt or grime from building up over time.

A final step in cleaning your bathtub is to dry all of the surfaces after you’ve finished wiping all of the surfaces. This can help prevent water spots on your tub and will show off your gorgeous, sparkling clean bathtub.

Acrylic Tubs Are Designed to Stand the Test of Time

Your acrylic tub is built to provide you with years of reliable performance. And, with proper care and maintenance, you can expect your acrylic bathtub to continue to look like new as well. The ease of cleaning and caring for acrylic tubs, along with the economical price and versatile color options, are part of why acrylic tubs are a top choice when homeowners are looking for a replacement bathtub. When you know upfront what to expect and how to clean your tub, you can also proceed with your bathroom remodeling project with confidence.
