Shower Floor Cleaning Help Needed
Advertisements [?]
Okay, here's an unusual and maybe semi-yucky question. We installed a new bathroom in our master bedroom about a year and a half ago. I did all the work myself, so I know with absolute certainty what's there and what materials were used.

The shower pan is a Fiat product, made of what they call 'molded stone' but what is, in fact, some sort of cast/molded plastic. Very thick and very durable. Also commonly installed all across the country. It has a non-slip pattern on the surface.

Our problem is shown in these pictures. The damn thing will **not** come clean. The first picture shows an overall view of the floor. The clean 'streak' in the upper left quadrant showed up about a week ago. It would appear to be the result of some one of our shower products having leaked from a shelf above and gone onto the floor where, lo and behold, it dissolved the dirt! We've tried everything there and nothing on the shelf now replicates the cleaning action.

The clean area in the lower left quadrant is the result of my having scrubbed the floor with a brush and Bar Keeps Friend (scouring powder).

I am reluctant to use scouring powder on the floor because, with time, it will no doubt wear it down.

Here is a closer look

This last picture is an extreme closeup of the floor's surface. The white 'stripe' is one of the quadrant dividing lines cast into the floor.

Does anyone have any suggestion of a tried and true method of getting this shower floor cleaned?
