Antifreeze stain in fiber glass shower

I'm trying to find info for a friend who has an older trailer. Is there a cleaner to remove an antifreeze stain in the fiberglass shower/tub area? The stain looks to be several years old. Probably dripped from the spigot and not noticed for a long time.

Try a little Softscrub, the kind with a little bleach in it.

Are you sure it isn't an iron stain from water drip? I have not heard of antifreeze making a stain. In fact when I winterize I don't worry about spills in the shower or sinks. They rinse right out when I do my spring cleaning.
If iron stains try CLR or naval jelly. Yacht outfitters usually have good rust removers.

I've had good results with Zuds non-abrasive cleanser.

I looked at it and it's not an iron stain. It's pink and looks just like the antifreeze we all use. Thanks for the help, we'll have to try some of the suggestions, I am just affraid to ruin tub for them, so I'll have them try out the mild stuff then on to the more heavy duty scrubbers, etc. We tried a fiberglass cleaner and it did nothing, Fantastic did nothing, Lysol, nothing.

I've used Clorox Clean-up on antifreeze stains in my shower. Just let it sit on there for a little while & it should take the pink off.

We usually have a slight stain if some antifreeze drips out. I use Soft Scrub when I dewinterize to take it out. Not really a big issue. Not sure how good it would work if it's sat for years.

Bought some and will try it soon. Used some around the house for other stuff and it works really well. Thanks!
