Cotton T-shirt Stained by Peroxide

I tried to remove a stain from a white t-shirt by using hydrogen peroxide, then setting it in the sun. The stain seems to be gone, but anywhere the peroxide was, the shirt turned yellow. Is there any way to get the yellow out caused by the peroxide?

What kind of fabric blend is it? 100% cotton or is it mixed with another fabric fiber? I've never seen hydrogen peroxide do that to a cotton fabric before, white or not. Perhaps it was because you put it out in the sun while the peroxide was on it?

I have had the privledge of the same thing happening. A nice pair of white capri jeans (cotton & 2% spandex) turn yellow in the sun after peroxide use. Are they toast now? I have washed them several times now and they still remain yellow.

We are trying a combination of white vinegar & baking soda to remove the peroxide stain from a white karate uniform. We used the peroxide to get out a dried in blood stain. Now we are trying to fight the yellow. It seems to be lightening the yellow spot as we speak, we are on the second time.
