Q: I've searched Apartment Therapy and can't find an answer to this. I have a plastic shower pan. It has a faux pebble look with lots of nooks and crannies. Before you look at the photo [below], you have to promise not to judge me. I do clean it, I swear! I can't keep it white and nice-looking. The discoloration seems permanent. I've tried bleach, Comet, Magic Eraser, degreaser, you name it. Nothing works! Is there any way to get this dingy shower pan looking good again? -Sent by Sharon

Editor: Never fear, Sharon! I think we've all lived in places with embarrassing features that thwarted us, mocking our best efforts and driving us crazy. I see nothing to judge in your photo, though I am a little terrified to hear that a Magic Eraser didn't work, because those things are spookily effective. Readers, what should Sharon try next? And let's assume that replacing the shower pan is not an option—thanks!
