Anybody have a problem with their tpu case turning into a yellowish/brown tint? It was completely clear when I bought it. Washing didn't help

You can try bleaching it? You can't prevent it.... your phone WILL get hot under load.

honestly unless you paid a lot for the case i say just get a new one. being the type of plastic it is most chemicals would probably damage it. they are cheap enough to get new one.

Ok thanks everybody, I can try bleach but I'msure the smell would stick. No it's not expensive. Another one wouldn't be too bad. I remember something about a solution that you could spray on but couldn't find it. Thanks again!
btw hit the thanks button for you all!

Buy a black one? Or a different brand?

I know, not really a solution, but a cover that changes color within a few weeks or months ... can't be made with very good material.
