Gettin' Dirty in the Shower

After searching high and low for a product that could actually restore our soap scummy shower (and door) to its original shine, we finally found a purple, pyramid shaped bottle at Camping World that was amazing!
Worked in seconds, seriously, and no elbow grease whatsoever.

But for some reason, , they stopped selling it. Now they have a shower cleaner/fiberglass cleaner by Thetford (I think) that stinks!

I've resorted back to 409, simply green, vinegar and water, Mr. Clean -- but nothing really cleans it the way the "purple stuff" did. If at all.

Anyone have any tricks to cleaning the fiberglass in the shower? Cuz I hate a dirty shower. Well, most of the time.

My 1970's vintage home is "blessed" with fiberglass tubs and showers. The only thing that I have found to actually get thru the soap scum/hard water crud used to come in a tall pyramid shaped spray bottle (can't find any lately) and in a spray foam (hard to find so I am hoarding cans...) Was it "Kaboom"???

I used CASTROL "Super Clean" mixed down after wiping with CLR. Once finish was genuinely "clean" used GEL GLOSS to keep it that way. (Here's how it looked on a 26-year old trailer).

Welcome to Gel-Gloss

Been using this stuff for over 20-years and highly recommend it. (I also used it on formica counters, anything acrylic, etc)

Trick No.2 is in using an easy rinsing body soap such as DR. BRONNER or NEUTROGENA. Cleanup was nothing compared with the usual cheap soaps (no matter how hard the water or how dirty the human).

Can't tell u what to use to clean, but I can tell u that if u use liquid shower soap you'll
not have to scrub it again. I've been using it exclusively for a year with fantastic results.
I used to have stopped up tub drains all the time, but not since i started using the liquid soap.

Can I use CLR on an ABS shower without damaging the plastic? Once I get the lime and other mieral deposits off, I plan to use one of the products specifically design for cleaning fiberglas showers and tubs. They are available at many store that handle cleaning supplies.

I didn't leave it on long . . not enough to dry, just to loosen up the scuz (my shower was acrylic).
