Magic Tub & Tile Spray-On Refinishing Kit


In this video, you’ll learn how to turn
your peeling, discolored, old tub into a freshly painted, refinished tub. Prepping properly is critical to
achieving a beautiful, lasting finish. We’ll cover some of the key steps in this video, but please consult the instruction manual
for the full details and list of materials. All of which you’ll need to gather before beginning. Be sure to block out enough time for the project. Prep starts with removing
all the hardware and caulk around the tub. Then, scrape away loose paint with a wire brush or scraper and remove mildew if necessary. First, use an abrasive scrubbing pad and abrasive cleaner to remove any dirt, grime or soap scum. After a thorough cleaning,
wipe the area with a lint-free cloth. Next, sand the entire surface of the tub
with 400 or 600 grit sandpaper. Scuffing-up the surface allows the paint to adhere properly. Vacuum the tub after sanding to remove dust. Then, use TSP cleaner to remove
any dirt, grime or soap scum. The surface should be clear of all dust
or debris before painting. A tack cloth will also help pick
up any remaining particles. It’s important not to rush the prep stages. Prepping properly will greatly improve
the performance of the new paint. Before beginning painting, allow the tub to dry and ensure the area is well ventilated by opening windows and using fans. Fans should not blow directly onto the newly applied paint as it can create air bubbles in the finish. Both cans of paint are the same, so grab one and shake it vigorously enough for the mixing ball to rattle. Continue shaking for an additional minute
to ensure it is well mixed. Spray product 10-16 inches from the tub surface with large sweeping motions, slightly overlapping as you go. Apply thin layers to avoid dripping. But if drips occur, smooth it out with a paint brush or wipe them with a cloth right away. After the first coat, allow 30 minutes for it to dry. Then follow the same steps for the 2nd coat. Once you’re satisfied with the coverage,
remove any tape immediately. Allow the tub to dry for at least 72 hours
before exposing to water, bathmats,
cleaning products or suction cups. Once completely dry, your freshly
painted tub will be ready for use.
