Hi, my duvet covers are white cotton. Lately they've started to look decidedly yellowed.

Can anyone recommend a good product for making them bright white again?

I did wonder about bleaching them but wouldn't know how, exactly.

Will try the oxy stuff, I know what you mean CD (haven't seen you around for ages)

I've discovered Napisan...and sadly I raved about it to loads of people last week.

Soaked a few 'used to be' whites in a big bucket... they were so white they went that 'i'm so white I look blue' type of effect, but they were soaking for hours and hours.
Did the job though!

Ah I checked and it is VANISH not oxy something!

Nice to see you!

Daz (honestly).

Wash at 60 degrees or 90 if you think it can take it.

Then dry outdoors in direct sunlight on a really bright day.

Some of my white cotton clothes have yellow patches on them which I can't get out with anything - not even bleach! They are some of the older pieces in my wardrobe (eg cotton pj's) so I've started to think maybe I should just chuck them out.

There are some really nice white cotton bed linen in this online shop. Maybe I'm just sounding a bit flash, I'm certainly working up to getting some nice new bed linen myself though, downgrading our bed linen to guest bedding!!
