Whitening Yellowed Fabric

I have some old white t-shirts that were packed away that have turned yellow. How can I return them to white?

Tee shirts are likely made of cotton. I would try laundering them in hot water with bleach, and then hanging them in the sun.

As long as they are just white with no other color,run them through the washing machine using dishwasher powder.

I would try adding baking soda to the wash, an extra boost would be to stop the cycle and let them soak for 15 mins or so. I use baking soda all the time and my whites are really white.

How do I whiten, yellowed white nylon fabric? The fabric is actually 86% supplex and 14% lycra. Thank you!
