    Cold Water and Baking Soda
    1. Place a basin in the kitchen sink. Fill it with cold water.
    2. Add 1/4 cup of baking soda.
    3. Swish the water around to dissolve the baking soda.
    4. Add the fabric, using your hand to gently swish it in the water.
    5. Let it soak for approximately one hour.
    6. Remove the linens, fabrics and laces.
    7. Use the spray attachment on the kitchen faucet with cold water to rinse the textiles.
    8. Line dry on a sunny day, outside. Sunshine will also brighten fabrics naturally.
    Another benefit from the baking soda wash is that baking soda is a natural odor fighter. It can eliminate or reduce musty or smoky smells from older fabrics.

    Oxiclean does wonders. Just soak the lace for a few hours, then rinse and lay flat on a towel to dry

      I tried Oxuclean whitening powder but it didn't do much. Maybe just plain oxiclean?

    Wash it with OxiClean then hang it outside in the bright sun to dry. Sunshine brightens white linens very well.
