Default Help, I stained my bathtub!

A couple people gave me a case of empties and I put them in our master bathtub with some bleach to sanitize them and take the labels off. They were probably in the tub for a couple weeks.

Well, today I finally got around to getting the bottles out and there is a black rim around the water line and the tub is stained a purplish black -- except where the individual bottles sat.

SWMBO is not pleased. Taking the Mr. Clean abrasive sponges to it did nothing. The tub is your garden variety plastic type.

How can I get this stain off??

I'd soak it in Oxyclean ASAP.

Thanks. Make sure SWMBO gets at least 3 glasses. It will make the stain disappear (at least temporarily )

I owe you a case my friend. Oxyclean, hot water and a scrub brush left it cleaner than it was before the bottles went in.

SWMBO is pleased and I'm still allowed to brew.

Good news! Life is good! Have another Apfelwein! My Kölsch keg blew an hour ago, so I switched to the good old standby. Man that Kölsch was tasty, but this Apfelwein is fantastic on this hot day here in Austin.

Get a big Rubbermaid Tub to soak bottles in the future!

Anyone else need marriage counseling?
