Yellowing Baptismal Gown

Here is a question submitted by Sophia:

I have a baptismal gown which is 30 years old and has yellowed. I’d like to wash it and try to remove the yellowing so it can be used for my grandchilds baptism. Can you help me?

Here is the response from our restoration expert Ed from www.gownmedic.com

The yellowing is caused by oxidation. Washing it won’t help much. Try soaking it overnight in 1/2 cup Tide dissolved in 2 gallons warm water. Rinse 3 times and hang to dry. Repeat procedure if necessary.

If this doesn’t work, you will need a professional.
