    Has anyone successfully returned a yellowed plastic sink back to white, and if so what did they use?

    Thanks

    A long shot but we use very sucessfully a HG product called Mould remover it is a very powerful bleach that disperses black mould in the bathroom grouting immediately but recently I tried it on the kitchen sink that had become tea stained, the sink is a stone/resin one and the results were marvelous. HG products can be found in all hardware stores.:thumb:

    And put the other half in a very large Gin and Tonic and forget about the yellow sink:thumb:

    Don't know about motorhome sinks, but my white plastic sink at home gets stained easily and I put the plug in - put half a cup of ordinary washing powder (for clothes) in and fill it up with cold water. Leave to soak overnight or longer if possible.
