Paint Looks Dirty at the Rim Edge

Sometimes dust and dirt build up on the rim of the tub where the exterior paint meets the porcelain.

To clean this dirt:

    Cast iron is chipped
  • Use a rag to wipe the dirt off with warm soapy water.
  • Touch-up paint
  • If that does not solve the problem, use rubbing compound on a wet rag. Use small circular motions and only apply enough force to remove the dirt.
  • Razor or very fine sandpaper
  • If the dirt still remains, use very fine (1500 or more) grit sandpaper, soaked in water. Using the smallest strokes possible, rub LIGHTLY and ONLY on the scuffed area. This will smooth the surface between the paint and the porcelain where the dirt was getting trapped.
