you must be nasty and a filthy housekeeper if it takes oven cleaner to clean your shower stall.

Thanks, I will try it. I run bare-footed a lot in the summer and the bottom of the shower has yellowed from red clay. Nothing takes it off.

Evidently you know nothing about cleaning fiberglass showers .... soap scum and mineral build-up are very hard to penetrate and clean completely .... I would imagine someone else in your home cleans your shower, not you, that is IF you even have a shower. My house is not filthy .... that's why I researched for the best product to clean fiberglass showers as it seems no matter how hard I scrub the soap scum and mineral deposits don't budge and I can't stand that.

That's your old wrinkled skin sluffing off your old wrinkled body. Bet it smells bad.

Thanks for the tip. Bath oils and gels, also soap scum build up on shower doors and walls are hard to clean. I have used beach and comet and lot's of elbow grease.
Ignore the negativity. Some of us do appreciate positive posts.

All I can say is if you haven't tried it then no negative comments are needed .... I cleaned one of our showers yesterday afternoon and my husband said it looked like new .... just to be on the safe side I would open a window or provide some sort of ventilation.

We have porcelain/real tile tubs and shower stalls, not pre-fab fiberglass or acrylic, like you do. Sorry, I can't be of more help. I would be careful of using something harsh on the cheap fiberglass ones like you have. Oven cleaner is very harsh whether fume free or not. you may end up having to replace the fiberglass with real material that will last.

I know this is an old post but I had cleaned an oven recently with this very type of Easy Off and was wondering if it would melt my tub. So far, I sprayed it on and I'm waiting. However, what a rude comment about being a nasty housekeeper. Fiberglass tubs are a bitch and no amount of cleaning can actually keep it clean when you live near clay or mud. Kids don't help either.

I know it works great in the oven...haven't tried it on anything else.. good to know though.. Wonder about after time if the harsh chemical wouldn't cause the metal around the glass to discolor or start coroding though..

actually, its really hard to remove dirt from a fiberglass tub. Normal cleaners don't do it which is why they make specific cleaners for certain items and most bathroom cleaners are made for ceramics not fiberglass.

Easy Off cleaner actually eats into your fibreglass. It does look cleaner but is degrading the fibreglass and over time it will look awful.

The best way to clean fibreglass is to use a fried chicken drumstick dipped in Windex. It will take 5 or so of the legs to complete the job.

Actually, you are rigjt to a certain extent. Some of the chemicals in Easy Off will remove a portion of the fibreglass gel coat. The gel coat is what makes the fibreglass glossy and protects the fibreglass underneath. Repeated use of Easy Off will eventually remove all the gel coat then, your enclosure will be dull and will hold stains. Removing and replacing these enclosures can be an expensive proposition since the enclosure is attached to the wall studs then overlapped with dry wall.

I assure you that if the folks at Easy Off thought their product was great for cleaning fibreglass, they would put the concotion in another container and market it as fibrglass cleaner.

Now, about those chicken legs....
