It has rust marks on it, corroded green bits, i clean it to the best i can all the time. Tried every product possible, i HATE IT!

Fill it up. Drop in two bio washing powder tablets. Leave it sit. Let water out, scrub with nylon scrubby. Rinse.

Oh thanks expat, never tried that, will the nylon scrub not erode it more, it is sooo rough.

T-cut car polish is excellent btw

if the surface of the enamel is worn away, re-enamelling is the only thing that will restore it to gleaming condition again

It's where the tap drips, it looks lovely. Suits my life.

I had an enamelled bath once

A friend (who was staying with me at the time) helpfully cleaned it with something you shouldn't use on enamel.

She poured it all round the bath and left it for a few minutes

teh liquid ate into teh enamel and left a stripy 'rib-cage' effect round the entire bath.

it never recovered

I moved

My mum did that to mine too.

She thought she was trying to help, bless her - doing my cleaning etc while I dealt with 4 week old ds. Fortunately we had just sold our house too so I didn't bother telling her off
