    I typically do the 409 test... Just take a Qtip and wipe a very small area. If it's bakelite, it will turn yellow very quickly... Otherwise it is not bakelite. I typically wash the 409 area very quickly... If it's a very old piece with string that may get damaged with washing... Then just wipe it with a clean towel...
    Some people don't like this test, but it's the only thing that I find useful.
