When you saw the ‘kids’ hall bathroom while visiting the model home in your last neighborhood it looked so nice. The décor was perfect. Everything was fresh and new.
Then the inevitable happened…
Your boys started using the bathroom!
Over the years the fiberglass tub/shower became yellowed with dirt you couldn’t get out…no matter what you tried.
