  1. Dip the small paintbrush in the hydrogen peroxide mix (three percent), coat the watch with the fluid and leave it to dry for 24 hours. Wet the soft cloth in the warm soapy water and clean the band. If the watch is still slightly yellow, repeat this step.

  2. Dab a small amount of lighter fluid on your soft cloth and quickly wipe the watch. Wet another part of the cloth with warm soapy water and wipe the watch again to avoid the lighter fluid from corroding the plastic.
