How do you clear snow globe water that has yellowed?

by Bailee

I have a very nice snow globe that I would like to either repair or replace the water in because it has become a disgusting yellow color.

    Hello, Look at the base of the snow globe. On many touristy type plastic snow globes there is a plastic plug on the bottom. I have in the past removed this small plug with needle nose pliers and put new distilled water in the plastic snow globes to completely fill/replace. If you have one of those needle syringe that is used for basting that would be the best way to get the water in otherwise it involves tricky tipping and pouring. Sometimes it can be done on the vintage glass ones as well — but a tricky repair.
