Yeah well mramay said I should polish up the air cleaner. It was already on my to do list but I decided to do it right then and there. So I removed it brought it to my room and started. And I spent 5+ hours doing this.
BEFORE CLEANING

AFTER SOAP AND WATER

FINISHED RESULT OF TOP HALF


I still have the bottom half to polish and the plastic oxygen tube or whatever to clean. That's for tomorrow cuz my arms hurt and I'm tired now hahaha.

Look, not to be a jerk or anything, but you using "lol" like the rest of us periods is a bit distracting.

Rubbing compound works well when you're doing the polishing like that. Try using that and then a polishing compound, you'll get it done much faster then 5 hours.

Rubbing compound like what? I used Nevr-Dull because it's what we had around and it's did the job. But I'll try whatever you think I should use if we have it.
