Hey Ya'll,
I have recently hit a cake makers gold. icon_biggrin.gif I traded a few cakes for too much to list but in a short list I ended up with a color flo fountain, 40 cake pans, 3-d pans (complete sets too icon_lol.gif ) tons of tips, 3 sets of stairways and a load of Plastic plates, pillars & angels that I told her that most likely I would have to toss in the trash b/c it has yellowed. Is there any way before I throw them away that they can be saved? I dont want to add them to my inventory & store them if I can't use them but I also know that bleach will yellow plastic. Any Ideas? I just hate to see them go to waste.
Thanks for your help!

Try soaking in white vinegar or bleach (if vinegar does not work). The wash really good afterward. This should work I have seen other people recommened this.

Oh No!!! Don't throw the yellowed seperater plates out!!!

Put them outside in direct Sunlight for a few hours and they should come back to white!!!

Peroxide is also a bleach (that's what they use to lighten hair, only it's in more concentrated forms than what you have at home. I used to work in a salon. )
