    T-cut will restore dull paint back to life on cars so I can't see why not, you could try it on out of sight area to see what happen or you can buy enamel bath cleaner

    Is it limescale causing the problem, is so try a limescale remover.

    A good way of cleaning and enamel bath is to fill it with warm water, stir in a couple of handfuls of biological washing powder, and leave for 24 hours if possible.

    I have polished mine with a battery operated car polisher, just the mop head of course, no wax. It improved the appearance but it was only temporary.
    It is possible to get the bath re-enamelled.

    Try jiff lemon juice.
    squirt the lemon around the bath leave for half an hour and rinse off sounds daft but works well

    Isn't this what you asked in a previous post? As it didn't get any 'tales of experience', why ask again :confused:
