Question Please Help - How do I remove Dark Grout Stains on a white Shower Pan?

I hope one of you professionals can help. We moved into a new home and there are dark stains on the shower pan most likely from tile grout. Any good idea how to clean these from the textured plastic shower pan? We have tried Goo Off, Acetone, much scrubbing with a stiff brush. Nothing so far seems to work.

Thanks

Try a little vinegar with the stiff brush.

I agree with Davy, vingegar is a mild acid and takes some grout films
out. If vinegar doesnt work another mild but stronger acid is sulfamic
acid. Acids shouldnt effect plastics but its best advised to do a small
test area first to make sure.

Hi Dave, Welcome aboard.

It might not be grout. If the vinegar doesn't work, try a little laundry bleach.
