White Spire not white anymore

My Virtue Spire in white is not white anymore, it got some pink and yellow stains that I am unable to remove, and the overall tone of the shell is not as white as it was when purchased.

Any ideas on how to get it back to a proper white?

Thanks.

Thank you, I will give it a try, looks like they sold it here too.

If it does not work, I will start to think about wrapping it in vinyl or painting it in white...

You could try soaking it in a little bleach water and give it a scrub

Already tried bleach, isopropyl alcohol and even kitchen degreaser without luck.

I will get some Mr Cleaner things today and try it out.

Cheers.

I would be concerned about the bleach weakening the shell.

Try tire bleach. I use it on my white shoes and it does the trick without ruining the material. Obviously don't dump a whole bottle on it lol. Paper towel and a couple spritz of the tire bleach.

Don't use goo gone on plastics. The stuff is made to dissolve polymers.

Also to prevent this happening in future, simply clean your hopper frequently.

This does not help, I cleaned it every time I've used it on the same day, on arrival at home.

Pink paint stains really easily. I have a pink stain in the clearcoat of one of my tanks. Got hit, walked off the field, wiped it of, and still left a stain.

As soon as I got my orange patterned rotor and my white spire I sprayed them with a few coats of krylon for plastic clear coat. I recommend this if you get yours back to white. It makes them shinier, easier to clean, and protects them pretty well.
