I assume they're dirty feet marks hmm tray isn't white like it used to be.
I've tried scrubbing, bleach and bicarb of soda (not all at the same time!) - any other suggestions?

I've been considering whitening toothpaste - is that a stupid idea??

Make a paste with Biological washing powder and leave on for a few hours.

I find that bleach left on for a while and then scrubbed gets most things clean.

ooh thank you fatjac, will try that overnight
saadia - I have in the past scrubbed on bleach and then left it on for as long as possible - didn't seem to make a difference, I was really surprised

yes that is surprising, have you tried anything like Cillit Bang - just seen the ads and they claim it cleans everything.

If you go to a good hardware store, they will stock HG Bath Shine which works wonders!

hmm i do have some cillit bang which got shoved to the back of a cupboard when I wasn't impressed, might dig it out and give it a go
Thanks Anna - will look into that if washing powder doesn't work
Also I've tried jif - should have mentioned that

do we have unnaturally mucky feet or something/???

That bath power stuff is brilliant

Try Viakal - if the stains have gone onto some limescale at the bottom then they won't come off the limescale easily, so you need to take the limescale off completely.

OK, thanks, more stuff to try!

Well about 3 weeks later blush and I've finally got round to it! Scrubbing with bio washing powder worked a treat, thanks fatjac! Can recommend it - my shower tray is gleaming like a daz advert and I could see the muck come off as I scrubbed - very satisfying!
