View Full Version : The Cure for Yellowing Parts?

12-03-2008, 02:43 PM
Someone might have found the cure for returning yellow parts to their original color. You soak the offending part in Hydrogen Peroxide 35% in a glass jar, in the sun, after a couple hours you parts will look like near new.

Here is the original post (Thanks to TheTF) :


As always, do it at your own risk.

This is one fascinating read. Anyone with a yellowed Storm Shadow that we could try this on?

Also, someone should forward this to CabanaJack. This is one topic he'd be very VERY interested in.

i think it would work better if i actually had a higher percentage peroxide

06-01-2009, 07:56 PM
Seems it works though...so that is always good news!! :thumbsup

yessir i was pleasantly surprised now onto whitening his body

06-07-2009, 05:09 PM
i have also found out by accident that if you bring it inside and let an 8 year old walk around and shake it all morning it continues to work after you bring it inside

06-08-2009, 08:04 PM
dont let them drink it though

06-09-2009, 01:33 PM
is that what happened to you blue?

More info on the chemistry behind this.


Looks like this isn't limited to just toy collectors, which is a very good thing.

A few weeks ago, I bought a badly yellowed Storm Shadow for $5 and tried this out myself.

It works! :banana

The 3% H2O2 is like Gijoe071681 stated (SSSLOWWW). But I simply didn't know where to find the higher grade stuff.

02-15-2010, 04:26 PM
higher grade stuff from a chemical company. I've heard that you can get like 6% from a beauty supply store.

11-18-2010, 08:00 PM
you know, I was just thinking, why not throw it into a jar with some effordent tabs, I mean its just like whitening dentures I would say and all those are...duhn duhn duhnnnnn peroxide tablets

Holy Crap, You found this thread that I have been looking for, forever. Thanks Ski :thumbsup

11-18-2010, 08:08 PM
yeah, I forgot where my walking dead thread was and I happened across this bad boy

11-18-2010, 08:46 PM
Hey I remember this thread. Now anyone know of a container big enough for a snowcat and or skystriker?

11-18-2010, 08:54 PM
I know that there are storage containers that are designed to slide under your bed, and it would be perfect for the skystriker/cat.

Like this:

But I know there are cheaper ones out there without the wheels, we picked up a set several years ago for $10.
