    Yellowed quilts

    My mothers stored quilts are yellowed and I would like to whiten them. Which products could you recommend that wouldn't cause them to fade so much?

    http://www.retroclean.com . Several people on the QB have reported excellent results with this.

    I have used Oxiclean with good results.. I think it may depend on how the yellowing occured as to the best method of cleaning. Some cedar chest quilts have staining from the wood that can be difficult to remove.

    i used a combination of Biz and oxyclean and soaked it in the washer for a couple hours. I probably would have gotten it whiter if I had more time, but I was on a deadline.
    my name is becca and i'm a quilt-a-holic :-)
