On our van, (10 yrs old), we have blue plastic shutters on the outside.
Over the years, the sun has faded them & they are starting to look washed out.
Does anyone know what I could use to bring them back a bit?
Thanks.

Can you take them off and turn them round so that the unfaded side shows to the front.

Good idea alpiner, thanks, but they're moulded plastic & won't turn around properly.
I know you can get black stuff for car bumpers. I wondered if there was anything for general plastics.

Hi I have same problem only my shutters are (were) brown. I can't imagine them looking very attractive even when the van was new.

Happy Days

I tried silicone wipe, but that didn't work! I haven't found any garden furniture reviver, I have looked!

I found the old bottle in the shed, its empty .It was made by Betterware and was called UPVC Frame and Furniture Cleaner. I used it in on the old style white plastic garden furniture and it brought it up like new.

Not sure if they still make it or if Betterware is still in business? It is a few years since I used it as we now have wooden garden furniture...

Contact number on the label is 0121 6931111 obviously I can't guarantee it would work on your shutters..

I scrolled down & saw the PCVU restorer & reviver. I might give this a try, but it will have to be next time I come over now. Many thanks.
