Show off your plated yoyos!


#1

A DRI-YWET showed up in my mailbox today. As much as I liked the tarnish, I had to give her a bit of a scrub. :slight_smile:

This thread seams like the appropriate place for this- I received an obsidian 54 in a trade, and want to tarnish it back to its original color. How would I do that?


#3

You mean it’s all cleaned up? If so, time will work its magic.

I’ve heard that some people have had success soaking it in Diet Coke.


#4

Not all cleaned up, but the rims are lighter then I’d like. I was thinking mustard?


#5

That would work since vinegar is in mustard.

Vinegar would also work :smiley:

WOAH!! Nice, man! How’d you manage to score that?


#8

What would be the safest? diet coke, mustard, or vinegar? What would be the the most effective?

Is there a way to remove tarnish from a plated yoyo without the needing of a special remover. Like any household items I could use or do I have to go buy tarnish remover?

Polish. I’ve used mothers polish.
If you don’t have any, I’ll bring some to the next meet for you.
