Because geekzone folks are so multi talented I figured this is worth an ask, so here goes....
We are about to commence a redecoration project at home. Whole inside of the house needs a repaint.
The electrical fittings are all Clipsal branded fittings (around 18 years old) and the plastic faceplates (removable) have all yellowed -as some plastic is inclined to do. I gather adding bromide to plastic as a fire retardent is factor in some plastics going brown.
Anyway - I had a fiddle with some peroxide solution and sunlight and had 'some' success - but they will just discolour again.
A quick tot up shows around 50-60 plastic cover plates. The switches/plug points under the face plates are all still bright white.
Not keen on replacing every power point and light switch in the house so was thinking about options - maybe someone else has worked through this.
Should I lightly sand them down and spray paint them?
What sort of paint - Maybe plasti dip (that looked interesting or would it just peal off too easily).
Because they have quite square edges/corners they would be difficult to cover in vinyl (imagine the shape of half a pack of playing cards if you get my drift).
Just on the off chance someone else has done something like this - any ideas?
