Q: I am the owner of a 12-year-old home. The white fiberglass shower floor has become discolored over the years in spite of routine cleaning. I have searched online for solutions, but all have failed. Do you have any suggestions for restoring the surface to its original white color short of replacing the entire floor?
A: Restoring the existing floor to its original color is going to be very difficult. Having a professional refinish or re-coat of the floor is an option. Check out www.miraclemethod.com online to see some examples of refinished fiberglass.
Have you tried the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser? You will probably go through several erasers and use lots of elbow grease, but it can do wonders.
