Cleaning bath tub

One of our bath room has not been used for one year. When we opened this bath room to take the bath, it was found that some black stain (maybe mildew?) inside the bath tube near drain hole as shown in attached picture. We have tried lots of cleaners such as bath tube cleaner, bleach and Blanqueador powder with bleach, but not lucky, although the black color went to light. Any suggestions?

That looks like the pattern from the back of a shower mat.
What kind of tub is this..... porcelain or acrylic (plastic) ?

Get a stiff bristled brush and clean some more. I can see where you cleaned away the dirt from the high spots but you've still got more cleaning to go. A mild abrasive scouring powder or jell might be good to try.

If you used any type of scouring powder, you've made a permanent spot for dirt to reside. You must use a non-abrasive cleaner. Something such as Bon-Ami.

Too late. With those cleanser you made a permanent spot for dirt to gather (they are very abrasive). Especially with plastic. Possibly a coating of some sort might cover it. A very light sanding or grinding might remove it then using a clear water proof coating.
