    Does anyone know how can I get the yellowing on white fabric from spray starch that has been ironed repeatedly?. Any suggestions?.

    Thanks,
    Marie

    thanks for the tip. i didn't know about spraying in the back and ironing on the front. i haven't had to use either yet but will file this away for future reference.

    I use dishwasher soap. like Cascade. Soak overnight in maybe a tablespoon in a quart of water. Gets all kinds of stains out of whites. This works on the yellow stains on old linens too - just let soak til stain is gone, sometimes 3 days.

    Dishwasher detergent also works wonders on all white t-undershirts soaked in detergent and very hot water.
