Hey everyone, new US member here. :)

So I picked up a DC14 today for one heck of a price. It worked great but I wanted to take it apart and give it a real good cleaning, plus I wanted to examine the vac to check if any parts needed replaced. Everything turned on to be great, I had her stripped down and cleaned each part thoroughly.

Now, on to the question. The bin was a bit dull to begin with but the cleaning product I used seems to have made it worst. It's not terrible but I would really like to polish it out and make it clear again. It's a bit frosty/dull at the moment.

I know there's ton's of plastic polish solutions out there, for example the kits they sell for car headlamps but I'm just curious if anyones tried this before and if so, what are your recommendations.

Thanks in advance.

PS: Love the forum!

I've not tried to clean up a Dyson bin but I've used some stuff called Renovo on my car's PVC rear windscreen and it did an amazing job. The bins are made of polycarbonate and I'm not sure if these sorts of products will harm the plastic. I can't think of any other options though so let us know if you give it a go!

PS: Never put the bin in a dishwasher or it will go very cloudy.

Thanks for the reply!

I was about to purchase a headlight reatore kit but it was $25us which is more Thr half Thr cost of a new bin. I'll try to find a cheaper solution on amazon.

I washed thr bin in my bath tube with warm water, degreaser and a brush. Next time I know to just rinse it with weather and that's it... :(

Once I find a solution I'll post Thr before and after photos.
