Heat them up with a heat gun, it will turn them back to blue.

yup, heat them up VERY CAREFULLY with some kind of torch. make sure to not hold it too close and melt the plastics. or you can simply put them in the oven. my dad did that to his and they look brand spankin new! just make sure you let them cool off before you tough them or else it will make them dull and not glossy.

Like a heat gun that is used to take off detailing like on racecars?

Yes, basically a really hot hair drier. A hair drier doesn't get hot enough to do the job.
