Scrubbing Bubbles Aerosol?

rogerv_gwSeptember 9, 2012

Does anyone have information on the use of Scrubbing Bubbles Aerosol on fiberglass tub surrounds (gelcoat)? Or cultured marble? We have a long-term house guest who tries to keep her bathroom clean, and I want to make sure that the cleaning products that she's using aren't damaging surfaces. I talked her out of using scouring powder, this is the next product she's trying, Scrubbing Bubbles Aerosol.

Any help out there?

Thanks very much.

After years of using scrubbing bubbles on my acrylic tubs upstairs, I learned that it is not recommended by the manufacturer. Lysol bathroom cleaner is recommended for fiberglass and acrylic tubs and it does well for cleaning.

It did not appear to do any damage at all and seemed to clean great. You might want to read the back of the can and just see what it says, even the small print.

I've used Scrubbing Bubbles for years on both cultured marble sink and fiberglass (I think) tub/shower with no ill effects whatsoever. I try not to breathe it but also can't abide the smell of Lysol.

I don't know about fiberglass but SB is a BIG no-no for marble and acrylic! It's abrasive, and yes, I'm referring to the aerosol. It will dull your marble. I'm guessing that after time it does the same on acrylic. Read the label and/or call the company. The toll free number will be on the can. I LOVE for my husband's porcelain tub and our cast iron sinks. Wish I could use it on our acrylic tub cause it works sooooo good!

I am also a big fan of SB because it cleans so well, the scent is not overwhelming and disapates quickly, and it's reasonably priced. Lately, I've beenn moving away from too many chemicals (hard to find a good cleaner). SImple Green cleans pretty much everything. Maybe that will work for you?
