    Does anyone know the best way to remove a dirty tide mark from a white plastic bath?
    Have tried various cleaners from the supermarkets but nothing is shifting it.
    I realise with it being a plastic bath there are limitations with what I can use but I just wondered if anyone had any suggestions or ideas.
    Thanks x

    Has the plastic been scratched from repeated scrubbing?

    No it's a really clean shiny bath apart from the tide mark. My friend rented out his flat and now the tenants have gone he's tidying the place up for the next ones but the bath looks horrible with this tide mark x

    Meguiar's Scratch X 2.0

    That will not only remove the marks but will leave a beautiful glossy finish behind too.

    ETA: Meguiar's PlastX is actually designed for plastic and so might be easier to use. I have tried that one though.

    The foam cleaners in the aerosols seem pretty good if she hasn't tried any of those. Cover the bath in the foam, leave it for a bit, then wash and sponge it off, if she's sure it's not scratched.

    For a very mild abrasive you could try smokers toothpaste.Other than that one of those magic sponges (white) Sorry don't know the trade name. They work a treat on glass. They are actually made from insulation material.

    I use a magic sponge for most tricky cleaning, add some fairy liquid for greasy marks, or appropriate other cleaning product for other types.
