It looks like they came out beautifully!


What beautiful linens. Thanks for sharing how you cleaned them. I have some pretty hand-stitched linens from my grandmother that need some care too.




They are lovely and certainly worth the effort to try as close to the original white as possible. My MIL always hangs her linens outside in the winter - she says winter sunshine and freezing temperatures are great whiteners.


thanks for this tip...I have some thing of my great grandmothers that I want to try this with!


This is very informative! I have some yellowed linens from my grandmother that could use this treatment...if only I could find the box they were in! :) The idea from Islandsparrow about hanging them outside in the winter sounds great as well. Thanks to you both! :) (P.S. I got your note, Deb, and I thank you!)

I love old linens and I use them with or without spots. I am glad to read how to get the yellow out and will have to remember this. How nice you will be able to enjoy them.


What fun to have some family treasures! Looks like they all came out pretty good.

These are beautiful, Sarah. Thanks for the tip resulting from your research. I, too, have some old lovelies that need this treatment.
