What can I do? What cleaning supplies will aggressively eradicate these stains without hurting the finish? I'm prepared to get down on my hands and knees with a toothbrush.. I already have with a floor brush. Lol, I'm ready to lose my mind!

Thanks!
try vinegar and baking soda, 1 part baking soda to 1 part vinegar. Or instead of vinegar use lemon rind. hope that will work

I try this method and it works for me.
The Ingredients You’ll Need:

1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons borax
2 cups very warm water
The Steps:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mixing until they are completely solvable.
Pour it into a spray bottle. Shake it and spray on mold bathroom wall or other surfaces.
After that, scrub and wipe using an old cloth well.
Lastly, spray again and wait for 10 minutes before drying it up.

For the bathtub, I would recommand a two-part epoxy bathtub paint. This type of paint can be used on porcelain, ceramic and fibreglass.

For more information, I would suggest this article: https://renoquotes.com/en/how-to-rem...om-using-paint
