The hydrogen peroxide has a bleaching action and the cream of tartar is acidic to help dissolve any calcium buildup. Both require time to work. Allow the paste to remain in place for about 30 minutes.
Use a wet sponge to remove the dried paste from the stained area. Rinse the entire tub with clean water. If the stain is lighter but still remains, repeat the process to complete the removal process.
