I have a few NW candy machines that have globes that have turned yellow. I have tried, alcohol, peroxide, heated peroxide, plastic polish with no luck. They still look like a piss color.

 

Any solutions?

I saw something about a high concentrated peroxide found at Sally Beauty Supply and UV light. The uv light causes the yellowing but apparently also fixes it. I think it was a YouTube video

I thought people discussed this before. The yellowing is the same as with headlights, and can be treated the same way. Although I have   seen some really intense work done with various grit sanding and polishing with headlights that won't work with globes.

But here is one person discussing what he does. It is mostly about prevention though:

I haven't tried any of this, but the idea of coating your machines with the same thing used to coat headlights doesn't sound like a bad idea.

You can buy a replacement then bump up your selling price to cover it. This guy is a member here and good to deal with.
