    Anyone every try a Magic Eraser on one of these? Granted its not vintage, but it worked wonders on my wife’s filthy MacBook.

    Fantastic. Science used for Good and not E-ville.

    I wonder if this will work on white Lego, the most susceptible of all Lego colors to yellowing and discoloration.

    Amazing! I wondered what caused the discoloring in plastic, it’s the flame retardant.

    And to think we used to paint the yellowed monitors when we refurb’ed them! I need to use some of this stuff; my Amiga 1000′s external drive has yellowed quite a bit.

    heh! when I were a young-un we depended on good old fashioned tar and nicotine. None of your posh bromine compounds and yer high-falutin’ ultra-violets!

    I was actually just mentioning this stuff to some other folks and am impressed. Vintage toy fans have gleaned onto this stuff and it seems to work quite well.

    I wonder if this will work with the yellowing Super Nintendos that dot the American landscape.

  11. Zum Zamim says:

    Yes. It’s been tested on some yellowed Super Nintendos and has worked.

    I’ve been searching the Amibay forums & still haven’t found their thread regarding Retr0bright. Even a search for “Retr0bright” on the website comes up nil. It’s become frustrating. I have a SNES in dire need of cleaning.

    Whups. Nevermind. I found it. (Huzzah!)
