The Functions of Acrylic Bathtubs

Acrylic is a durable, low-maintenance material that can be customized in many colors and shapes to fit the bathroom decor of almost any home. It is also very easy to clean and maintain, making it an ideal choice for a new or replacement bathtub.

Acrylic tubs are cast from molds, resulting in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs. They come in corner options and freestanding models that give your bathroom a sophisticated theme.

The surface of an acrylic bathtub is nonporous and smooth, which makes it easier to keep clean. It is also resistant to chips and cracks.

It is sensitive to cleaning chemicals, however, and some abrasive cleaners can be harmful. You can prevent stains and damage by using non-abrasive cleansers, such as soap and water or equal parts of vinegar and water.

Occasionally, scratches may appear in the acrylic bathtub's surface as it wears over time. These should be repaired immediately to avoid permanent damage and prevent the formation of rust or mold.

Scratches can be repaired by sanding with fine sandpaper, then buffing the area to restore luster and improve scratch resistance. A little lemon juice or baking soda mixed with a bit of water can help with removing grime and dirt as well.

The acrylic surface is also prone to stains, but these are less likely to discolor or chip as quickly with proper cleaning and maintenance. You can also use an auto wax to preserve the lustre and protect the tub against fading and scratches.
