At some point filling it with water and dishwasher detergent and gentle rubbing with a sponge doesn't work. Resistant stains in sink after mechanical/painting/lubricating work, stains in toilet accumulate with time too.

Scoring pads? Even the most delicate Scotchbrite pad w/foam backing - pink color - is not recommended on Acrylic fixtures.

Then there is baking soda with vinegar - TAD works.

Barkeepers Friend was recommended by somebody for careful use on Acrylic. Ingredients: LINEAR SODIUM DODECYL BENZENE SULFONATE (DDBSA), OXALIC ACID.

Did anybody try the 'Friend, or is there anything else?

You would be surprised how well car polish works on stained plastic. Also doesn't scratch and makes them shiny again.
Had a white plastic kitchen sink in our last TT that looked like new after 13 years of use.
I also use BonAmi (not comet!) to clean plastic garbage cans. Doesn't scratch and takes of dirt that nothing else will.

The wife uses Softscrub. Scott's suggestion about the car polish is a good one too

Car polish sounds interesting.
Softscrub - could you ask the wife, which one? They have 6 different cleaners - gel, no gel, Oxi, w/bleach, without.

Cleaner sold for use on glass stove tops works perfectly. Actually a very fine rubbing compound that will polish glass if you have the patience. I use it on a folded up paper towel with excellent results.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Just wet, wipe, and rinse. Have used them in both the trailer and the camper.
