As title says. All advice gratefully received. Is lots of tiny little specks (spray from a roller) rather than one large patch. Thank you.

For a plastic bath try a scouring pad designed for non-stick pans. I quite enjoy picking the bits off with my nails.

For an enamel bath Barkeeper's Friend is a fab abrasive cleaner.

emulsion paint softens in water, but faster with meths. Mix it with WUL to slow evaporation and stop it running off. Test it with your thumbnail and once softened, rub it off with a damp towel. If you let it go dry it will harden again.

Perfect will give it a go. Thank you.
