How to Clean a Molded Plastic Tub

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Vernon in Colorado, you’ve got The Money Pit. What can we do for you today?

    VERNON: Yeah, I live in a house that – it’s 12, 15 years old. And it came with one of these plastic, molded garden tubs. And over the years, that thing has become more and more dingy looking…

    TOM: Mm-hmm.

    VERNON: … and we just haven’t found anything that seems like it will brighten it back up again. Do you have any suggestions for that?

    TOM: Have you tried Bon Ami?

    VERNON: Not that brand specifically.

    TOM: You know, I’ve got a solid-surface sink in our home and that’s the only thing that seems to pull the stains out of it. I mean I’ve tried bleach and other things like that. Bon Ami seems to work pretty well. I will say that plastic surface does deteriorate and it tends to discolor and some of that…

    LESLIE: Especially in the sun.

    TOM: … is a chemical reaction of the plastic. But if you give it a try, I would give that Bon Ami a shot and see if that does it for you.

    VERNON: OK. Alright. Appreciate it.

    TOM: You’re welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
