You can remove the bathtub decals with a little distilled white vinegar.  Warm one half cup of vinegar in the microwave for 15 seconds.  Soak a cloth in the vinegar and place the cloth over the decal for 10 minutes to let the acid penetrate and loosen the glue.  Once it's fully saturated, the bathtub decal will peep off.  Then thoroughly wash and rinse the tub.
