Youtuber Perifractic (atariage user: Starglider01) published a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8P1OVj0IcqY on which he tried to retrobright old plastic with just the power of the sun, no other element needed. I decided to give this method a try, and these are my results, after 2 day of exposure to Italy morning sun (about 6 hours): before after before after So what do you think? I believere there are some improvement over the initial state, without any effort!
I recently purchased some beige TIs off of craigslist. I cleaned them up and they still had a bit of yellowing so I had this great idea to retrobright them. It was a big mistake. The retrobrighting process turned them white, and the process also left the coloring marbleized. For reference, I did not retrobright the keys; also in the photos, the TI sits on top of a white freezer. I did die a little inside after I saw the results It is entirely possible that I did something wrong, but I just thought I would share my experience in case someone else has the same great idea. It might give you a little pause before you do it.
