Hiya

I've been cleaning up some old plastics and now I'm left with a faint nicotine orange colour throughout.

Do I keep cleaning or is that as good as I can expect???

Many thanks.

Ash

I had a yellowed plastic that I turned into a clear one the other day, I put it into a clear bag of 17.5% hydrogen peroxide and left it on the patio table for a couple of days in the sun, I tried this last winter and it took over 2 weeks to do the same thing. Not tried it with artwork on plastics though.
Think you can only get 10% ish strength hydrogen peroxide now but should still work.
