Can Sun-damaged Plastic Be Restored?

jannieJanuary 13, 2010

I have some old Barbie furniture that was mine in the '50's. I'd like to sell them on Ebay but one of the pieces looks very yellowed from the sun. Anybody know how to clean/restore the plastic to white?

I may be wrong but I don't think it can be done. Are you sure itis sun damage or just old plastic. Sometimes plastic does just yellow. Since you are selling them used, Why not just sell it as is

Plastic yellows with both age and sun. It won't clean up. Just sell it as is.
