The acid in the cleaner can cause metal to oxidize and then develop rust because there are no longer any oils that are protecting it. It’s important to avoid using these products on your tub, or you’ll find yourself replacing all of the metal parts fairly quickly.
It is best to use a residue free, non-abrasive scouring pad when cleaning the bathtub. There are metallic sponges made for this purpose, or you can cut one of your kitchen sponges into strips so that you have a large surface area to use when scrubbing at stubborn rust spots
