How to remove old adhesive from Bakelite plastic? Answered
Recently put back in to use an old Northern Telecom rotary dial telephone. It works awesome and ironically it has the best sound out of all my phones, huh.. Anyway, the case is Bakelite plastic. On it was an old label that had its phone number, contact info, yada yada yada... I peel it off, but under neath the old adhesive made the plastic look matte, as opposed to the original glossy black that the rest of the phone has. Any idea as to solvents to gently break down the adhesive, yet not effect the old Bakelite plastic?
