Question whitening yellowed fiberglass tub/shower????

Our DD and DSIL bought a 5 year old house and the previous owners were alittle less than...shall we say handy. Our DD is very savvy with cleaning but she is stumped on how to get this particular tub up to her standards. What have any of you used that took care of this problem? TIA!

I found this tip on two seperate web sites. Might be worth a try!

To remove discoloration from a yellowed bathtub, rub the tub with a solution of salt and turpentine. Rinse well. Caution: Wear rubber gloves when you work with this solution

Cleanology Offers This Tip On: Yellow Stain Removal from Fiberglass Shower
To remove yellow stains from your white fiberglass shower, try using a solution of 1 part white vinegar and 3 parts water. If the stains persist, you can try using an oxalic acid product, such as Barkeeperīs Friend.

You and I think alike. I just googled and came up with that exact same thing and emailed it to DD. Thank you!

Have you tried a magic eraser? It has gotten our fridge back to white.
