Discoloured Plastics

The external plastic trim on my caravans battery box, toilet cassette door and wet locker has gone from white to a spotted grey. Can anyone tell me if there is a product that can returns these areas to a nice white colour?

I think you will find that most caravaner's suffer with the same problem. We certainly have and have yet to find a solution. So if there is anyone who has found a solution to this problem, we would love to hear from you.

I had the same problem on my Trigano, the plastic drag handles sort of went "Mouldy". Also it seemed the surface had degraded.
What I did was removed the handles and sanded them with fine then very fine wet & dry paper in a bowl of slightly soapy water till the marking had gone.
Then I polished them using T-Cut and then Silvo.(Hard work).
To keep them clean I use some UPVC polish on them.
