Removing Bathtub Decals

I love the non-slip surface bathtub decals make, but I hate how dirty they can get. Every few years we just replace ours, but removing them can be a challenge. Here are some tips that can make the job much easier.
  • Soak the decals in mineral spirits and use a popsicle stick or other blunt object to get under them to pull the decals off. This will leave the glue so you will have to use something to remove it. To remove the glue you can use Bon Ami or other slightly abrasive cleanser if you can use that on your tub surface. We use Goo Gone. It works great on removing the excess glue.
  • You can do the same procedure as above but instead of mineral spirits you can try rubbing alcohol, lighter fluid, nail polish remover, or paint thinner. I have only tried rubbing alcohol so try the others at your own risk.

As always, be careful when working in the bathtub. When you put many of these cleansers into the tub it can become very slippery and we don't want you to slip and hurt yourself.
