Fortunately I don't need to store my sink in plastic.  The other detergent solved the problem.

Nope, and no.
I just bought one that had a large tank and whose price I couldn't resist.

I consider sanding a last resort, if at all.  It's very tedious work and if not done properly with the right kind of sandpaper (automotive grade) you could ruin the dial bezel.  Try putting the dial bezel in a soak of Oxyclean.  If that doesn't work, try using some of the other soft-scrub methods mentioned, but if the numbers are still yellowed, if it were my phone, I would just leave them that way or get another bezel (I hate sanding).
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

Honestly, to me, yellowed numbers/letters look classy on an old WE500. Whitened numbers would look too new.

Too much Dawn Powerclean turns brass bits into gold jewelry?!  I think that I'll try that right away!
