How to Wax Your Tub and Surround

How to Wax Your Tub and Surround

Waxing your tub and surround will add a protective coating to your tub, just like waxing your car. It will restore dull surfaces with a nice sheen. Plus, it repels water, reducing mineral buildup and spotting making cleaning your tub and surround easy.

  1. Clean your tub and surround – you don’t want to wax a dirty tub. Allow to dry.
  2. Choose a wax. You can use a car wax like Turtle Wax or you can spend more money on a Gel Gloss.
  3. Apply a thin layer of car wax like you would a car.wax

    Be careful to apply the wax on the entire surround and only the sides and edges of the tub and never wax the floor of the tub as it will become very slippery and dangerous. Stay away from the caulk lines too as they can remain the color of the wax.

  4. Buff the wax with a clean, soft cloth.
  5. Enjoy a cleaner tub for the next 6 months – 1 year. Reapply once or twice a year.

We have enjoyed our American Standard Princeton Tub for many reasons for the past 3 years and it still looks as good as new.
