Default Cleaning plastic shower.

I have an old farm house that has been sitting a few years and has a plastic shower stall. It is in good condition except for brown stains that seem embedded. I've tried the basic 409, Comet Spray, and the Mr. Clean pads, but nothing works well. Will anything get it white and clean again?

not sure if you're still having this issue but I was thinking ... I wonder if you coated the bottom of it with a paste of baking soda and water, and then sprayed it with vinegar - the vinegar would cause the baking soda to foam up, if you let that sit a while maybe it would loosen up the embedded dirt and grime to allow you to get it clean? Just a thought!
