I would try Oxalic acid. I've used it to remove (bleach out) the stains from an old bath tub (rust, etc.) and the black marks water will make on old wood furniture usually around nail holes. It is only available from a pharmacist as it is a poison. Comes in a small plastic bottle. White crystals. I dissolve a small amount in water. Say 1/2 tsp to 1 tbs water. Brush it on and let it sit awhile. Occurs naturally in rhubarb leaves. I believe it is also an ingredient in Bar Keepers Friend. Good luck, Raz

You could change your attitude. Look at it as a decorative swoosh like on those big motor homes. From the picture, I think it looks sort of cool!

OTOH, you could stain the rest of the surface and have a blue shower stall.

If you must get it up, I would try Bon Ami. It is a cleanser that doesn't scratch.

Wink Blues Stay Away From My Floor

I emailed Thetford since they make "The Blue Stuff" and here is the answer I received:

Per our chemist:

"They can use a powder bleach (Clorox 2) and water paste on the fiberglass shower stall. Use a small brush to get the paste into the groves and let it set a few minutes and rinse away. It may take a few applications if the stain has spread deep into the fibers. Please be sure that the stall is clean and no ammonia has been used for at least the last 24 hours."

Thanks,

Darlene

There you go from the horse's mouth so to speak.

Note on title: I remembered a song, "Blues Stay Away From My Door." It turns out it is an album:

Thanks, Roger...that was very kind of you to go to the trouble.

I'll pick up some Clorox 2 next trip to the grocer's and we'll give it a try. If it takes a few applications that will be fine.

Who knows I may get used to it over time, eh? Maybe to a tie-dye effect on the whole thing reliving my hippie days. (smirk)

We're also thinking about getting some of that Dry Deck stuff to put in there so I don't slip and fall climbing on to the jon if that floor happens to be wet (I'm barely over 5')
