I want to sell some of my old bagless vacuums, and want to make them look nice. Anyone here know how to make the "fog" or "cloudiness" on the bin go away? Thanks!

There's been a few threads on here about that

Here are some links:

I'm sure somebody else can also chime in with some recommendations.

Meguiars headlight polish.

The meguiars headlight polish works good for my junky old flashlights and vacuum light lenses. It polishes and removes cloudiness from clear plastic. the polish looks like blue slush drink and comes in a white bottle. Not to add that dirt spinning around probably scratched up that cheap plastic, so you will probably have to buff the heck out of it as well.

The easy and best solution I have tried is Armor All. It works like a charm.

This is how I do it.

We do about up tp 20 machines a day.

I mounted a drill using its handle and bolted that to a old chainsaw bar.

I had a special polish mixed due to the level of shine i need and the fact that using normal car products is seriously expensive when you use a litre a day of polish. I buy it now in 5kg buckets, It works great on Kirby's too

The formula my Chemical guy used works so well that I ma now selling to car washes to use on buffing up damaged plastic headlights.

Any how see a dyson bin below
