Whitening a Yellowed Baptism Ensemble


I received this nice email from a thankful reader today.  Se had read my tips on removing stains from heirloom clothing.  She even sent me before and after pictures!  You’re welcome, Sue! So glad I could help!

I came across your site while searching for information on cleaning christening gowns. My daughter wanted her baby to wear the dress that she had worn for her baptism 31 years ago. The dress was satin and VERY yellowed and I did not think that it could be safely cleaned. I was hesitant about following your instructions, but I finally put everything in a tub with equal parts Oxi Clean & Dawn. Everything came out as white as snow! Thank you so very much! I’m enclosing before & after pictures. Sue Hasson  Cincinnati, OH.
