Bathtub stains can be extremely difficult to clean up and remove, when a tub gets old and porus. Often times bathtubs will have dark black, yellow or rust stains that can ruin the look of your bathtub. The enamel of a bathtub is baked in so it is usually quite durable and non porous. This baked on coating allows for the use aggressive scrub pads without having to worry about damaging the finish of most bathtubs, but as the tub ages the glaze tends to get worn away by all this scrubbing.

One solution to the above problem is refinishing. Bathtub refinishing also known as bathtub resurfacing, bathtub reglazing or bathtub re enameling is the process of refreshing the surface of a worn, damaged bathtub to a like new condition. This process typically involves a thorough cleaning and repairing any damaged areas. Chips or cracks are repaired using Bondo or another type of polyester putty.

After repairs are made the surface is prepped with an acid etching, some new refinishing processes do not require the use of etching. After preparing the surface primer or bonding agent is applied, followed by a top coat. Generally, a synthetic white coating is applied, usually an acrylic urethane, but the coating does not have the durability or abrasive tolerance of the original glass enamel coating of a factory new bathtub.

Over the years bathtubs have had a variety of uses. One of these, however was not the assumed use of making bathtub gin. Bathtub gin refers to any style of homemade spirit made in amateur conditions. The term first appeared in 1920, in the prohibition era United States, in reference to the poor quality alcohol that was being made.

Bathtub Gin, AKA Railroad Gin, was often poisonous due to the lack of care that went into the making of it. Obviously, there was a very high demand for alcohol during prohibition, and people would often risk getting these poisonous varieties by buying them from non-reputable sources.

If one were to make gin in the bathtub it could be hard on the finish if the tub had been reglazed. However, one use of the bathtub, washing your car engine, is very hard on a refinished bathtub. Doing this will definitely void your warranty.

Routine normal use of the tub should give the tub an expected life of 5 to 10 years. Of course you would need to care for it properly and follow the care and maintenance instructions, which forbids washing your car engine, bleaching or dying clothing, or making bathtub gin, if you happened to have an old family recipe.
