    I have toys/items that are pure white but have not used them in a while and have been lying in storage for some time therefore the white on them have turned yellow or sort of dark cream yellow

    I want to know what cleaning solution Do i need or what should I use to un yellow or make them white again

    Did you leave them in clear view of a window? They must have soaked up the sun :teehee:

    Next time rub SPF 100 on them? Or just put them in a black bag.

    An actual suggestion for your problem would be: Timpsons. If they don't whiten just by a normal cold wash and some stain spray then take 'em to the cleaners.

    wash them with bleach, but be careful that could also ruin this, but bleach does bring the whiteness back Ive tried this before, check on a small area first though.

    The items in question are made of plastic, they are old power ranger toys that have turned yellow

    so should I run them under hot water to clean it or use bleach or other cleaning solution to use
