Default Re: Mains plug restoration

One comment. I have no idea of the chemistry involved but I do know that bleach affects some plastics. I expect it's not all and possibly only few. But I do know it happens. I've had a number of cistern flush levers snap after using in cistern blocks with bleach, and indeed toilet seats go brittle when bleach based cleaners have been used. Only realised what was going on after starting to see warnings on toilet related bleach based products, and indeed toilet cistern parts mentioning that bleach can do this.

As I say this may be totally irrelevant, but I'd hate to have someones plug disintegrate in their hands..

Hopefully someone can reassure me I'm worrying for no reason?
