Bleach can also damage the surface of baths, so always choose cleaners that are specially formulated for use on acrylic baths.

The real key to maintaining a beautiful fresh whirlpool bath is regular care and prompt cleaning. Don’t let dirt, grime or limescale build up, and you’ll have a luxurious bath to sink into for many years to come.
