Hi I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to give you some tips on cleaning up fiberglass. You may have a fiberglass shower like this, you may have a fiberglass bathtub, either way fiberglass is a little bit of a porous material and it tends to hold stains. You may need to clean it more often and if do have something that's fiberglass, you're lucky that it's white if it is because bleach is always a good friend to people who have fiberglass in their home. Also, the next thing you want to make sure you have is barkeeper's friend. The bleach is something that you want to spray, let's see, you want to spray bleach every other week to cracks and corners and things to keep the look, to keep your shower or bathtub or whatever, looking brand new. Barkeeper's friend is going to to be what you use for scrubbing when you're actually getting in there, putting some elbow grease into it and giving it a good scrub down. Just want to sprinkle it onto a sponge and work it in a circular motion. This will remove stains, soap scum, hard water stains, rust, barkeeper's friend is awesome, it's really good for so many things. And when you're done, just give it a once over with some vinegar and water, that's what's in here, there's about I would say a little under a cup of vinegar in this quart of water. This is going to help rinse off the barkeeper's friend, this is a non-toxic biodegradable substance so it's not going to be harmful if it touches your skin and things like that. So if you have fiberglass, you now know how to care for it and what supplies you need to keep in your house. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you clean up fiberglass.
