Hi,
I'm looking into RetoBriting my NES and I found REALLY cheap Hydrogen peroxide, but it has a ton of wierd ingredients like "hydrogenated castor oil" and "Cetearyl alcohol" Does this matter or will it screw up my NES? (I have a spare NES that I'll try it on first just to be safe and to not ruin my $400+ modded NES)
Here's some pictures of the ingredient list:

Thanks!!

I’m not at all familiar with retrobriting, but that looks pretty different from regular hydrogen peroxide since it’s some kind of hair product that simply contains hydrogen peroxide. I know prices might vary based on where you live, but hydrogen peroxide is typically really cheap (as in < $1 where I live). If you have a Walmart, Target, or any pharmacy where you live, I’d play it safe and buy some from them; it usually comes in a 3% solution mixed with water, so you wouldn’t be exposing your console to all those other random chemicals.

I've never had stuff turn yellow so I can't confirm, but I have heard that some of the ingredients in retrobrite are unnecessary.

In this video, a man cleaned his gamecube's yellowed front panel just by submerging it in hydrogen peroxide and leaving it out in direct sunlight for a while. But again, I've never done this, so take that as you will.
