    Hmmm..he's GOT to do it today....and he's not married... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Either he has a hottie coming over and is trying to hide his true grotesque nature (don't feel bad man, we're guys..we all are gross in one way or another), or his landlord is stopping by later... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    no I don't have a girlfriend or im not seeing anyone. I don't have a landlord. I just want to clean it!!! It's been like that for a few months now. Think of it as bright pink paint on your truck that is black. It stands out and is ugly. So you want to remove it! Anyone know how to use it?

    I got this tip from a buddy who runs an apartment complex , I have used it , but try a spot first to MAKE SURE your tub is safe to use it on . Anyways spray easy off oven cleaner on the tub and tiles , let sit an hour wipe of with wet rag and rinse . Worked on my PLASTIC tub when I used to have my apartment /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Step one: Pick up bottle of CLR.
    Step two: Turn bottle around so you can have a clear view of the back of the bottle. Ensure good lighting is available so as not to strain your eyes.
    Step three: Look for the word "Instructions" or "Directions".
    Step Four: Read the Directions (or Instructions). The directions (or instructions) will folow immediately after the word "directions" (or "instructions"). Take notes if neccessary.
    Step Five: Commence cleaning of the bright orange drippy water stain, following the directions (or instructions) from the bottle of CLR.

    Good luck! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have never used CLR, however, I do know that on the back of most bottles of household cleaner, there is a bunch of words printed on the bottle. These are commonly known as "instructions". Read them... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    If it is a fiberglass tub...you are screwed ...Sont use CLR

    Dude this is too hard for you, go to the store, buy some orange spray paint and some clear coat

    Paint the damn tub orange

    The little nozzle on top, point away from your face

    Open a window while you're at it

    Dude, you remind me of this kid I work with. He's supposed to be in this mentor/job placement program at the Chevy dealer I work at. This kid cannot reason his way out of a paper bag. I kinda feel sorry for him, cause he is dumb as a rock. But hey at least you ask questions, this kid doesnt.

    dood you can eather pour some on a rag and wipe it on then rince it off , or fill the tub all the way up as hi as you can the pour a bunch in and let it sit then rince.

    if you give a crap were gloves it is slightly corosive to skin i dont are it only burns if ya got a cut.
