When you're not crushing hapless Lego fencing...
That works best for pillows.(Kidding. I have a bag with micro-holes when I have to clean or disenfect Lego. I tend to only do rise cycles and avoid tumbling or spinning the pieces if possible.)
^ Sorry, I'm being very slow today... Fencing / gate... Yes, I am the bane of LEGO land containment structures...;-)
^^I don't believe in karma; I'm not Hindu or Buddhist.
Speaking of discoloration, has anyone used peroxide and sunlight to restore the colour to old Lego? Does it work well, and does it work on all colours? I have some old faded white bricks that I've been meaning to try it on.
karma means action, so I guess there is no believing, it is just fact.
I have had some great success with white and old blue bricks, but you do need to be careful. I would recommend using a weak-ish solution of Peroxide with a tiny amount of oxy added and monitor your LEGO closely, as I have had a few issues with blue plates, which developed a white patina on them, if left too long.It is worth doing, but do be prepared for some failures, especially with coloured bricks. Practise on bricks that you'll not be too upset, if things don't go entirely to plan.Some other links:http://brickjungle.blogspot.co.uk/2010/03/lego-whitening-guide_21.html?m=1http://thebrickblogger.com/2012/04/make-your-clear-lego-shine/The second link is useful for your old trans bricks and uses a completely different process. I have had a little success with this, but not completely validated personally, as I've only tried a very few bricks.
