  • Fiat shower base stain

    Have a fiat base ..Been installed for about 12-13 yrs. Was scrubbing it and ripping out the old caulk ..Trying to brighten it up..Looks like a puddle of water laid there and a slight stain outline appears..I have tried everything .Even plugged the drain and let the clorox set in there ..Is there anything anyone can recommend to remove a stain like that? Let's hear some home remedy miracle stain remover ideas..What about Billy Mays KABOOM etc..Thanks

        Treat it like you would a boat. Go to the boat store and see what they have....or a car detail shop. Thats my advice.

            Did you try Santeen? (Hydrochloric acid). The stain outline might be a mineral buildup from the standing water. If so, Santeen seems to get rid of lime, calcium, and other mineral deposits on china. I don't know what the acid would do to fiberglass.

              Someone told me to try CLR Calcium, Lime , Rust remover....Guess I could see what Fiat recommends ..I'll let everyone know what does the trick if I find it

                My wife uses CLR on our lav drains from time to time to shine them up. It works very well and it's not quite as aggressive as Santeen. It's still something for which good ventilation is required.

                Good luck!

                  This is all I could find .They do mention CLR and Bar keepers which I believe I saw both of @ HD ..What is a plastic sponge though..Not much of a cleaner

                    I've had good results with Barkeepers Friend,can get it at any grocery store,also got some stains out of one with a diluted wash of muriatic acid once,didn't seem to affect the F/G at all,just the stain.
