Restore Bakelite?

Answer

Bakelite is a material that is used in many vintage or antique pieces and is a hard but durable plastic. Since it has a very thin but high gloss glaze on it, you have to be careful not to use extremely harsh cleaners on it since they would destroy it. First step is to use a clean and soft cloth to gently wipe off the item. Then use a liquid metal cleaning polish to gently polish the Bakelite and restore it back to how it would have looked originally.
