Would the polishing process damage the new caps ??
Good question. My answer would be if the intent is to polish the vacuum caps, then yes. Turning the old buttons to mush would be the better choice.
The new buttons are, as a standard of PP practice, treated with a UV protectant and it can be removed with aggressive polishing or for that matter scrub cleaning the caps. This treatment should last 6 to 8 years if it is not scrubbed off. Warm soapy water and pat dry is the best answer.
Thanks for a great question.
