How should I remove mold and mildew from a plastic camera body? I have a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera with mold and mildew on the plastic [Bakelite]. I read the following threads:

But those are devoted to cameras that smell, cleaning and restoring leather, or cleaning lenses. In this case the lens is clean and the mold and mildew are on the outside of the camera body.

http://www.howtocleanstuff.net/how-to-clean-bakelite/ and http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-Bakelite suggest liquid metal polish. Is this safe?


I can put it in sun light every day.
What solvents can be safely used?
