As it says, besides bleach, any tried methods of removing yellowed fuel stains from white Cox plastic parts? Parts such as the white wing from the Quite Zone Trainer.

Read about RetrOBrite however part is too large for process or to bother with.

Have you tried peroxide? It does wonders for bleaching animal skulls. Can’t see any harm in trying.

I have had some luck polishing Cox plastics using a slow running 4" cotton wheel and polishing compound like Turtle Wax or Novux plastic polish.
White is probably the hardest, some of Cox white plastics yellow from age and that won't come out.
There was a member here that used a compound he made up for this aging yellowing and claimed it worked. Ill try to find that thread, its been a while ago.
