Renew shine on porcelain tub

Posted by gaylemh (My Page) on

I have an older turquoise tub that has white streaks on it.
I believe it happened when the tile above was cleaned with bleach tile cleaner. When the tub is wet it looks fine, but turns white when it drys. First I thought it was a soap film, but its not. The bleach in the cleaner must have ruined the finish. Is there anything I can use to put a shine on the tub? The streaks are on the sides and look like run marks.

Borax claims that it shines porceline. I tried it on an old white tub and it did nothing but it is over 60 years old and looks like a cotton ball. Maybe you could try it.
