I’ve also had success with the Salon Care cream (Osborne 1 case, original mac keyboard), but I used UV lamps over about 24 hours.

I wonder to what extent thermal heating in the sun and the broader spectrum affects the reaction kinetics. 

Has anyone ever looked at the profile of yellowing in plastics? How deep is the yellow layer?

Also: After buying a gallon of the salon care, I was routinely “randomly selected" for enhanced security screening for a year when returning to the US from overseas (but never outbound). Coincidence?
