I took the parts out of the cleaner just and took a image.... It seems the plastic has lightened up a lot more than I had originally anticipated..

The mouse button seems to have some blooming, but I think the problem was it had flipped upside down and likely ended up with some hot spots from the heater element.. I guess the boiling effect may be helping things along.. So having a bubble tank may actually speed up the process..

I had also not realise that some of the water had actually evaporated, so the top of the mouse frame is actually a darker part which had not been exposed to much water as the rest of it... But this actually worked out good for a comparison to the original colour...

So I will leave both parts out in the open the next few days and see if the things continue to lighten up as they did before....
