Restoring UV Damaged Lego - I didn't believe it till I tried it myself!

Put UV damaged Lego back in the Sun. Mine goes on a tray in the greenhouse. In a couple of days (sometimes longer) you will see amazing results. It works on Light Grey (Gray for our U.S. friends), Tan and White. I haven't tried any other colours (Colors) yet.

If anyone can explain why this works I would be very interested! How can the same thing that caused the problem, cure it?

    So, just to clarify, you don't treat the bricks first - you just put them back in the sun?

    If they have dust and dirt I wash them in hot water and Washing up liquid, rinse and dry, then bake in the sun. Forget Bleach, Forget Denture tablets and Forget the washing machine. As far as I know this is the only method that works. Tell Everyone!!! It should be common knowledge.
