After having your bathtub reglazed, you will need to follow specific care instructions to keep your tub shiny and new. Eventually, you’ll need to clean your tub to remove leftover soap and grime, but keeping your refinished surface perfect will require some special care.
Cleaning Your Resurfaced Bathtub
While you can use your tub after it dries, you should avoid cleaning the tub with strong chemicals for the first month after resurfacing. A mild soap and soft sponge may be used to clean the surface of the tub for the first few weeks. After 30 days, you can begin using non-aerosol cleaners on your tub. For best results, Bath Magic recommends using gentle cleaners available in trigger-pump bottles, letting the cleaner sit on your tub for 3-5 minutes before wiping it down with a non-abrasive sponge or a soft, dampened cloth and thoroughly rinsing. Leaving chemicals on your surface without completely rinsing them off can damage the glaze.
Before cleaning your tub, you should remove all bottles and caddies from the surface. Your bath mat should not have suction cups on the bottom of the mat. Suction cups can add pressure and cause damage to your refinished surface, from markings to peeling the glaze. Bath Magic has a line of safety mats available to keep you safe from slipping and falling and prevent imperfections on your new surface.
