Crochet Christening Gown Has Yellowed

I have an antique crocheted christening gown that I need to carefully wash at home for my granddaughter. It has mildly yellowed with time. I will appreciate any help. It is all cotton.

Try soaking it in Oxiclean, it works wonderful.

My christening gown is 58 years old. My grandson is the third generation to wear it. Unfortunately it was a little yellow. I googled how to clean it and several people suggested oxi clean. I soaked it over night (in lukewarm water w/ one oxi clean pod in a clear glass bowl) and it worked beautifully. Thanks to oxi clean and all who suggested this.

I agree with Realtorrose, my sister did this with a baptismal outfit and it worked wonderfully!
