I did it the first time on an overcast day, and it doesn't take a lot of UV to catalyze the reaction, so I wouldn't worry too much about coming up with an intense source. If you have a place you can leave them outside on a day that it is not going to rain, you'll be fine. Since then I've used it to clean up all kinds of yellow plastics in not so great fall and winter sunlight, control knobs on my hot tub, etc. I think you're over-thinking the UV part. If you have to do it indoors, just put down a plastic sheet inside a window in your house that gets some sun and leave them there for a while.

Especially during the months we are currently passing through. That leaves a properly chosen artificial UV source as the only remaining choice. Just what lamp to use.. Aquarium algae killer? Nail cover hardener? EPROM eraser? Money tester? ? They seem to be all different in their UV characteristics.. > > -- > SD! > > > Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2012-10-07 21:00:06
