Clean Tub

Remove hardware and the old caulk from the bathtub. Clean the tub thoroughly with a degreaser.

Step 2

Repair Chips

Mix a two-part epoxy filler until it forms a paste consistency (Images 1 and 2). Next, apply epoxy with a putty knife to fill any chips in the tub’s surface (Image 3). Scrape excess epoxy with the putty knife to reduce sanding time later (Image 4).
