Smoke Damage From A Mantel Scarf

I have a white crocheted mantel scarf (doily) which has been discolored by building a fire in the fireplace. How do I get the stain out of the scarf? Half of it is white and half of it is yellow.

Here is some info for cleaning of soot/fire/smoke damaged items:

Shake off excess soot (if any) outdoors.

Launder in washing machine using a heavy-duty phosphate-based detergent or heavy-duty liquid as recommended by manufacturer, one cup of water conditioner, and 1/2 cup of all-fabric bleach. Use water setting appropriate for the fabric. Air dry.

Inspect for smoke odor. Repeat as necessary. Three or four washes may be needed for cottons and cotton blends.

Good luck
