    Hi,
    I'm looking into RetoBriting my NES and I found REALLY cheap Hydrogen peroxide, but it has a ton of wierd ingredients like "hydrogenated castor oil" and "Cetearyl alcohol" Does this matter or will it screw up my NES? (I have a spare NES that I'll try it on first just to be safe and to not ruin my $400+ modded NES)
    Here's some pictures of the ingredient list:

    I've already watched this video and nothing really stood out to me in it, could you elaborate? as this doesn't really seem relevant.
    Thanks!

    It's easy as (something)
    You'll need a lot of hydrogenperoxyde and some heat, like 55celcius.
    Put everything in a large container and let the peroxide do its work. About 15 hours.

    This is the newest method.

    Not to be rude, but did you read my question? I already know the retrobriting process, I wanted to know if the different oils and whatnot made a difference.

    Ahh, I love The8BitGuy!
    Anyways, to not watch through the whole video, do it how he does:
    Use a black plasic box and fill it with water until the intire piece is ‘drowned’.
    Then, fill the plastic box with 40% phereoxide (if I even spelled that correctly), and seal it with something like a clear wrapping seal. Because of the UV light and the 40% of that stuff, the tub will create a sertain effect that will restore the color of yellowed plastic.
    This will take a while though, if the sun is fully shining, it may take about 3 to 4 hours.
