      Once you have tried all of the scrubbing solutions, what can be done to cover up stains in a porcelain bath tub?I have seen services that claim to recoat the tub but they seem expensive (almost like buying a new one) and who knows how well that lasts. Anyone have other ideas?

      : Once you have tried all of the scrubbing solutions, what can be done to cover up stains in a porcelain bath tub?: I have seen services that claim to recoat the tub but they seem expensive (almost like buying a new one) and who knows how well that lasts. Anyone have other ideas?Im assuming you mean the brown/yellow stains you get under the tap spout, where its been dripping. Use hydrochloric acid. Wear rubber gloves, and glasses……. THIS WILL BURN YOU BAD. A single wipe with neat acid will clean up the stainDISCLAIMERAll advice is given with-out seeing the job, and hence all advice MUST be taken as advice with limited knowledge on the exact situation.

      I guess they are stains from those Dont slip adhesive stickers that people use on the bottom of a tub. The stickers are gone but they damaged the porcelain.I dont know if these will burn out or if they require new porcelain overcoating.
