Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steele1 Horrible Product!!
My husband used this product on our 70s powder blue tub. He followed the process precisely and perfectly. We even gave it an extra day without use (4 days total) to be sure it had enough time to dry. It looked awesome...until we used it! The paint immediately started to peel, and got worse with every shower/bath. Our daughters (ages 1 and 2) would get out of the tub with paint stuck to their bodies. We eventually ended up peeling off most of the inside of the tub so that we could bathe our girls, and so the paint would stop clogging our drain. After the paint had really started to peel, I decided to try different sponges just to see what would happen. The paint got scratched all over with one of the Cello sponges with the yellow on one side, and green slightly abrasive on the other side. The company really doesn't give a great guarantee on this product anyway, but of course we hoped we'd be the exception!
TIP: If you have to peel off your paint for whatever reason, it peels off in nice big chunks if you spray it with HOT water, not cold.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Welks Peeled after 2 months
My tub did look so much better at first, and I loved the color. However, now it's been about 2 months and the paint is peeling off in sheets from the tub. It seems like once one little piece peels, the whole thing comes off. So far it is limited to the bottom of the tub, but I'm terrified the rest of the tub will start peeling as well.
Only feedback from the manufacturer was I must have not cleaned the tub enough. I spent hours cleaning the tub per their exact specifications prior to applying the paint...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Diane This product is a total joke
We are preparing to put our house on the market ,so we decided to spruce up bathtub. we followed the directions to a tee. after a lot of time and hardwork,the tub "looked" beautiful. within a few days of use the paint started peeling. We are now stuck with a huge mess. We will have to try to get all the paint off so we can fix it up. I have never been so disappointed in a product. Home Depot should pay more attention to the products they sell. This one was endorsed wholeheartedly by their employee. Don't waste your time or money!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peter spray version worked good on kitchen sink
Strange how the spray on version gets such awful reviews (2107) but the Paint on version (2106) gets perfect reviews.
I purchased the Spray on version from Home Depot in Oct 2010 and applied it to our two kitchen sinks. I have not experienced the peeling that others have noted. The product performed good in our sinks. It has been two years and the sink is pitted at the bottom again from wear and tear though. I am getting ready to reapply with the second spray can that I still have. Maybe there is an issue with the newer product since I used it before any else has posted here.

I paid close attention to instructions. My first problem was that the spray nozzle dripped rather than giving a fine mist. I practiced before application. I tried shaking longer, I tried short bursts of spray. Sometimes it gave me a fine mist, then would start dripping again. There can be NO drips if you want an even coat. I think the spray can does not work as well when you have to turn it horizontal because it give me more problems on the floor of the tub when you must turn the can parallel to the floor. The second problem was that after drying, it was not shiny, but somewhat dull. The surface did not feel smooth. Plus the places where I tried to fix the drips were obvious. This was applied only 3 weeks ago and the tub has not been used yet so I don't know yet if it is going to peel off as other reviews reported. At any rate, I am going to recoat this mess with a Rustoleum 2 part epoxy acrylic product. I will say that the tub and sink look better than they did. But it could be better.

This is the greatest since sliced bread. I was amazed at the finished product. Tub looked brand new. You must have a steady hand.

Our contractor used this product to restore our old bath tub. He followed all of the manufacturer specifications. The tub peeled as soon as we used it. Now we are out the cost of the product and 3 hours of contractor labor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fastpastor Works great!!!
I am a professional contractor and have used it in several occasions. I have not experienced the peeling as others have described. In fact to fully test its durability, I sprayed down my porcelain utility sink that we use in the shop. It is covered in junk, paint, oil, debris, and stains. I did zero prep work to it and the stuff is barley coming off a year later. the success of the product is all in the prep work, if it the surface is not prep'd properly, then I can see why others are having problems
