White Satin Dress Has Yellowed

I have a white satin dress that is about 30 years old and very yellow. Is there anyway to make it white again so my daughter can wear it? Thank you.

Try soaking the dress overnight in whole milk, make sure all the material is submerged. Next day rinse until water runs through clear. I used to work at an antique shop and this is the method we used regularly on vintage wedding gowns.
