Ha, not that I have one, mind, you, but I'm hoping a Fool out there in Fooldom has a solution for me. My upstairs shower base is acrylic and white. It's got those little bumps in it that seem to collect stains. I guess when one washes (and perhaps I should ask $IQ about this), but it seems that the dirt would run off one's body and onto the shower base, where it drains down the drain. I have no idea why it doesn't stay white. It looks like DH scrubs army boots in there.

In the past, I have tried mixing every solution under the sun to clean it. The only thing that worked was pouring on bleach, and then mixing it with abrasive cleanser and scrubbing, scrubbing, scrubbing with a brush for hours and hours. Surely, there has got to be an easier way. NO OXYCLEAN . . . TELL ME IT ISN'T SO. Isn't there something I can send DH to the store to buy that works on this? We've spent a fortune on things like Tilex, Lime Away, Shower Cleaner, Cleansers and Bleach.

There should be a way to make the shower base look as good as new, but I don't have the foggiest idea what to try. Help, help.
