    You should use the exhaust fan every time you cook. Or get an air purifier cause your lungs are inhaling that too.

    Do you smoke? It could be the old "nicotine patina."

    Make a paste with bicarb and lemon juice and give them a good rub with it.

    If they come up nice then it's something like oil particles from deep frying or cooking meats in a fry pan. If they stay yellow, and they're plastic, then they've been damaged by heat or direct sunlight and there's not much you can do.
