Steps-by-Step Tub Refinishing

Clear out the tub: Make sure you wash out your tub. Clean out the easier stains and clear out the dirt. The tub has to be cleared of anything you can whip out of it.
Fixing the chimping parts: A mixture of a two-part epoxy, this epoxy is the mending glue to repair the chips in the tub. Make sure you fill in the epoxy in the troubled areas.
Sanding: After applying the epoxy to the necessary area you would need to sand it down. If you have sandpaper handy you should start scrubbing away. A sander would make the job much easier. This step requires the epoxy to harden.
Sand and clean: After the initial sanding you need to scrub down the whole tub once more. After you have scrapped the whole surface whip off and clean the excess sanding left behind.
Cover up: now you would need to place down some protective paper or plastic sheets. This is to make sure that any area not being reglazed is safe from the products.
Makeover: apply the paint finishing to the tub
