Anyone else having their teeth straightened with Invisalign? I have questions!

I'm on the 2nd set of 38 trays, and it's all going fine, no problems as such, no pain and my teeth are looking comparatively good as I'm bloody brushing/flossing/rinsing so often.
However - my first trays were very yellow by the end of the two weeks, and the top tray of this set is also looking decidedly stained. Why?? And what can I do about it??
I'm not eating or drinking with them in, and I always do the whole cleaning routine before putting them back in.
For the first set I used Retainer Brite to clean them once a day, plus soap/water & toothbrush each two me I took them out.
This time I'm doing the retainer brite only twice a week (I've read mixed opinions on the internet), but they're still staining - only the top ones though.
Any ideas on how to a)clean them and b)avoid this in the future?
