I know I've read it in here before just can't find it, but what can you use to clean the yellowing on a white tube?

Bill Hunt shared this in the Tasco 7TE-5 thread:

I used a spray carpet cleaner to remove the yellowing on the tube. I also use a product called Ballistol to lube mechanical moving parts. Its bio-degradable no carcinogens no buildup. Try it. Another fine German product safe to use on anything including plastics, wood, steel. Invented before 1900 for use on firearms.

I think this is what you were looking for, yes? :jump:

Hey Kenny,
Did that scope I sent you help fix the problem with the one you got off ebay?
