I got a very yellowed buggy for baby Cuddles in a lot of accessories and I was wondering.... has anyone ever used hydrogen peroxide to whiten accessories that are supposed to be white? I was thinking of it 'cause hubby had used some recently to whiten a deer skull. The buggy is an extra so I was going to try it ad a test and see if it worked. What do you guys think? Would it work to whiten plastic? Would it damage the plastic?

Good question! Smile I have a spare yellowed buggy too. I did try some hair lightener that I found in one of our cupboards on it. This has a small amount of hydrogen peroxide in it but it had no effect....of couse I'm not sure how old that lightener was....but I'm sure someone else here has tried this before with stronger stuff

BBR is an organic chemistry instructor in real life. I would think that as long as the hydrogen peroxide was dilute (say about 3% or so..mostly water, in other words) and the product was soaked at least over night in it, that it would work. Of course, you would have to take off the wheels, or at least keep them out of the hydrogen peroxide. Saturated hydrogen peroxide (through scientific companies, it can bought it up to 35 %) may cause the playset to become too brittle. The real reason why even the whitening happens is that some of the plastic is broken down into small molecules by the hydrogen peroxide through a radical reaction, thus it exposes layers of the plastic that are not discolored.

ETA: I found an article where someone has tried this before:

You'll have to let us know how the whitening goes! I never thought to use hydrogen peroxide, but I did use bleach one to whiten parlor and stable parts. I will definitely try the 3% hydrogen peroxide on my yellowing Pretty Parlor door and base.

Thanks BBR! Hubby as the cream (like for hair) so he painted a spot on the bottom of the buggy last night so I will check it in a little while. If that looks good I am going to do the soak. I have some before pics to post in a bit here.

Okay, here are the before pictures with the white bed from the stable to compare:

Hubby%20painted%20on%20some%20of%20the%20creme%20on%20the%20bottom%20of%20the%20buggy%20to%20test%20overnight%20and%20it%20dripped%20down%20the%20side,%20see%20how%20white%20it%20made%20it??

Then he tried the soak with the liquid last night for me but he just checked it and said that it hasn't whiten much at all so he is going to bring it in and I am going to try the creme on the whole thing!
