Re: Safely removing paint from a fiberglass tub
Latex paint will soften if soaked in mineral spirits. which will not harm fiberglass. Plug the tub and lay a rag towel over the paint. Saturate the towel with mineral spirits and let it sit for a while. After an hour or two lift the towel and see if you can work the paint loose. It make take several soakings to get it off. you will want to have the window open or the exhaust fan running to keep the fumes down.
When you're finished. wipe up any excess mineral spirits and dispose of in an environmentally friendly manner. Do not leave wet rags in a pile, spread them to dry so that they cannot build up heat nor flammable fumes.
