How do you repair an acrylic bathtub?

Answer

Repairing the surface of an acrylic bathtub can be done at home without professional help. Since acrylic is a non-porous surface, it is easy to clean. The color of an acrylic tub goes all the way through the material so that a scratch can be buffed out without altering the color. To repair the surface, use 1500 grit sandpaper and remember to wet it first. After the scratch has been buffed out, a liquid polish can be applied to restore the original shine.
