The ingredients for cleaning can be purchased at any store or pharmacy

The plastic white window sills that most Ukrainian homes have are cheap, quite durable, and look good. That is until a yellow or gray spot appears on them. There are many reasons for plastic yellowing: from material aging to exposure to sunlight. Although it is not easy to deal with, it is possible to clean them.

OBOZREVATEL has collected several ways to whiten a window sill and return it to its original appearance. You only need cheap products that are easy to find.

Laundry soap

A gel made from ordinary laundry soap is a pretty good bleach. Rub a small piece of soap on a grater and soak it in a little water. Apply the resulting gel-like substance to the stain, wait for 5-10 minutes, and then rinse it off. If the soap alone doesn't do the trick, add a little toothpaste to it. You can rub the stain a little with this mixture. Then rinse it off thoroughly.

Hydrogen peroxide

This liquid effectively restores the white color of plastic. It is necessary to take peroxide from the pharmacy as it is of a low concentration. Oherwise, it can damage the window sill. Apply a little liquid to the yellowed area or stain and rub it with a sponge. Rinse the area with clean water.

Baking soda and vinegar

The active foam formed by these substances deeply cleans the plastic of the window sill. Dilute the baking soda and vinegar in a 1:1 ratio and apply them to the stain while they are in active reaction and foaming. Leave the product on until it subsides. Then rinse it off.
