Lego Whitening . . I remember seeing this webpage Retrobright on the brothers-brick a few weeks back. The solution is mainly a $2 bottle of hydrogen peroxide. Retrobright suggests using 10-15% however, for lego it appears that the 3% is good enough. The 10-15% just likely reduces the time from 10-20 hrs to an hour. I basically pour the 1/3 of the bottle into a plasic bowl (from the delicious healthy choice steamers). Then add a dash of the oxi-clean solution. Apparently chemists say this acts as a catalyst. Step 3, put in sun (another catalyst). Come back from work and you have white legos. The above pic is a before after. One of the pieces on the stack on the right is a brand new white piece (Won't tell which one). The rest looked exactly like the ones on the left before. I put the ones on the left in a bleach solution and extensive dishwasher soap with no luck. Just to prove to myself that it is a chemical reaction. There was one really nasty decorated slope I had that took two solutions, but is now perfectly white. Quite amazing stuff... For less than $10 I'll be able to restore all ~500 pieces to their original condition. This is huge because if you order used white pieces from bricklink you can pretty much guarantee that they'll be yellow on arrival.
