Is bleach safe to use on plastic? Yes, it is corrosive to plastic. It does not eat up the plastic in one go (we are assuming you are using the diluted bleach or bleach water as the cleaning agent), but the damage it would create is definite.
What can I use to whiten plastic?
- Pour straight peroxide in a container.
- Put the plastic in the container.
- Allow the plastic to soak in the sunlight until the stain lifts.
- Rinse and dry.
Does bleach turn plastic yellow? Plastic surfaces, such as serving bowls and acrylic bathtubs, are susceptible to yellow streaks when exposed to chlorine bleach for extended periods. Failure to promptly and thoroughly rinse bleach off plastic, such as during cleaning, is commonly responsible for the discoloration.
Will bleach make plastic white again? Once you’re confident that it won’t, try using it as a whitening product for your plastic. To whiten plastic, wipe the surface of the plastic with a bleach solution. To make the solution, mix 1 tablespoon of bleach per 1 cup of water. To prevent discoloration on your skin, wear latex gloves when you handle the bleach.
