Bathtubs and shower trays cannot be brushed with the use of cleaning products containing micro-granules, or washing lotions. Micro-granules can create small scratches on the outer layers of the surface of the bathtub or shower tray. Such scratches will enlarge with time and accumulate scale and sediments.

Because of that, the bathtub or the shower can become matte and lose its original color. For every day care of acrylic bathtubs you can use special liquids that do not contain any abrasive particles. While cleaning the bathtub, do not use any brushes, dishcloths or abrasive cloths. Using them for a longer period of time to clean the bathtub may cause the same problems as with products containing micro-granules. For cleaning the bathtub or shower tray, you should only use soft cloths or sponges and special products designed for surfaces prone to abrasion.
