How to clean clear acrlylic?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine gave me a clear acrylic case he had, and he is a heavy smoker (disgusting) so now, the case looks gold/brownish. I figured it was from being around him, or something else, idk. Is there a way to clean/restore the original clearness of the case, or is it permanently stained?

Novus 3 Step Polish

Step 3
Step 2
Step 1

Step 3 will make the most difference as it is the coarse polish, then follow with step 2 then 1.

I use this stuff get scratches out of acrylic boxes and display cases. It also does a number on yellowed headlight lenses. Its worth a shot.

If you want to save cost skip step one, its just a sealant and the case will reach a pretty descent shine with #3 then #2.

Is this something I can buy locally?

You can order it online but you might want to clean the case with some heavy duty cleaner like Fantastic and rinse it off in the bath tub. Just spray it on and let it do its thing don't rub it with anything. Then if it has minor scratches proceed to polish with the above mentioned.
