If you’ve purchased an acrylic tub or shower from EZPro Baths Express, we’ve got the perfect cleaning guide for proper hassle-free maintenance.

General Cleaning Instructions:

For normal everyday cleaning, BCI suggests the use of a mild soap and water with a soft wash cloth. Use of scouring pads or abrasive cleansers will dull the surface. Should you wish to use a product not listed below, test on a small area in the corner of the skirt before apply­ing to the entire bathtub liner. Always review individual cleansers’ instructions. Always rinse thoroughly after cleaning.

Recommended Cleaner:

Dawn dish soap & water, Formula 409. Vinegar and water may also be used to soften mineral deposits. Use 1/2 cup Clorox Bleach per gallon of water as a disin­fectant.

Do Not Use:

Original Clean Shower, Clean Shower for Plastic Showers & Glass, Soft Scrub, Dow disinfect­ant cleaner, Dow Scrubbing Bubbles, Scrub Free, Lysol disinfectant cleaner, acetone, Lestoil, ammonia, fingernail polish remover, aerosol cleaners, or scouring pads.*

There is no need to use abrasive cleaners. Abrasive cleaners dull the gloss over a period of years. In extreme cases where the recommended cleaners do not work, use a Chore Boy or 3M Sponge pad. Make sure you use only the ones recommended for Teflon or non-stick surfaces.


*Use of these chemicals will cause a dull surface and/or an easily recognizable chemical crack. This will void your product warranty.

Drain Cleaner:

Caution: liquid drain cleaners are recommended over powders and/or crystal; however, when using liquid drain cleaning agents, bail the standing water out of the bathtub and re­move the drain plug.

Use a funnel to prevent spills and apply the chemicals directly down the drain. Always make certain that chemicals do not come in contact with the acrylic sur­face. Use drain cleaners sparingly, so that they do not boil out and attack the acrylic surface.
