One of the best things I have found to clean stained tubs with is called The Works--tub and tile cleaner. It is sold in grocery stores and the Dollar Tree.

Cleaning a stained tub and tile in the bathroom can be challenging. Sometimes old fashioned products are best. Make a paste of 1 part peroxide to 2 parts baking soda, apply to the stains, let it sit for about 30 minutes. Then use a cloth or sponge and scrub well. Rinse clean and the bathtub and tile will look great!

I found two things that work really well for this. The first is baking soda put baking soda on the stained area add a little water and rub it in. Then rinse. The other thing that works is the Mr. Clean magic eraser also its a lot less messy.

The first option is to apply straight bathroom bleach to the stains, and allow it to sit for 20 minutes. If the stain is on porcelain then you can apply oven cleaner. If the bathtub is plastic or acrylic, you can soak the stain in laundry detergent.

First you wet it down. Then you get a sponge and soap and wipe it down. If it is really bad then you should put stuff on it and let it sit to get into the material.

If you have really stubborn build up a good scrubber like Comet will work great and it will brighten the surface. Comet works great for tile too and will clean it and whiten the grout.

If the tub is stainless steel the use soap and water and wash it well. If it is a ceramic tub use soap powder and wash it well. If the tiles are stained use any shampoo and wash the tiles dont use acid because as days go on the tiles will lose its colour and small holes will occur.
