Default Re: Ebonite cleaning / preserving

As Peter mentioned above I tried using Brasso to try and restore some ebonite parts I had on hand that had turned a shade of olive green, and unfortunately it seems to have not affected the colour (although much more shiny).

Has anyone tried using fabric dye to dye ebonite like you can do with plastics? Also, on some vintage pen websites some people talk about a much-kept-secret formula that chemically restores "hard rubber", does anybody know anything about that?

Thanks,
Aly
