Peroxide soak (Before and After)
« on: May 16, 2019, 09:33:39 PM »
Thought I would try my hand at the peroxide treatment. I took my yellowed white 10 button 1554 and soaked it in some peroxide and warm water in the sunshine today. Started around 10:00am and finishing up at 4:30. It wasn’t too bad considering the clouds covered the sun every now and then. Had it been sunny all day it would have taken less time.

Now that's how it is supposed to look! Great results. The other method I advanced to is using a peroxide crème formula. Being a thicker paste type it spread & stuck to the plastic better and did not evaporate.

Here is the end result. It is whiter then in the pictures. The lighting in the phone room is not the best for taking pictures.

Will the strict peroxide soak work as well on other colors ?

I'm not sure, I'll have to give it a try on an old coloured phone.
