    I can vouch that this process really does work! I did my A600's keys and they came out whiter than white!

    OK mate. I will wait until next week before I start to add the information into the Wiki. And you are welcome to join the CA Wiki so you can add to and edit the entry once it has been started.
    Coming soon - ..

    @tonyyeb

    Just wondered what % peroxide you used and how long you waited before your whiter than white keys?

    My keys will have been going 24 hours, I checked them last night around 12 hours ago and they didnt seem to have changed any.

    I don't want to open pdf uploads for the whole forum for reasons previously discussed. I can set up the ftp today for you to use instead.

    It just doesnt seem to be working for me.

    Just to clarify a few points,

    * I am using Hydrogen peroxide Liquid and not the creme/powders you can also get.
    * My maplins UV Bulb is of the energy saving variety (link from EAB thread)
    * I used a few old clear plastic chinese takeaway dishes for the yellowed keys to soak in.
    * My Peroxide is 12%
    * I get white blotches on my hands with any contact of peroxide (dont shout, I originally wore gloves but after messing about for days I got impatient)
    * I have been soaking for 48+ Hours with very little change if any.

    From the zero knowledge of chemistry I have, my guess is that the UV bulb is not good enough to act as a catalyst?
