Title: How can I bleach my white aero zytecs's back white?
Post by: Blueylad on February 10, 2019, 08:54 AM
Hi guys wondering if anyone can help me to get my aero zytecs back to some kind of white as they have a discoloured yellow tinge about them, I've read some of the stickys on here but not mad keen on buying domestos for the job, my bread knife's a hairdresser so has all different strengths of peroxide's if these are better to use and how to use or apply it.  :chin:

All the above ...
But red UV light or hanging them out on washing line in the summer sun works them quicker..
You can Use the same procedures on white Zeds ..
Ask you missus for strong peroxide hair product and plenty of cling film.
Make sure you wear gloves as stings like fook..

They were never really white from what I remember, I'd just give them a clean and leave them as is.  Look much better than bleached white.

To be fair I've put them in the dish washer on a deep intense clean and they look the beez, I might just keep them as they are and bang some fresh gum blue tyres on them. explosion

These are pretty much the only tyres which look right for decent money worth putting on
