Making White Part of Soccer Uniform White Again

My daughter's soccer uniforms are white polyester with black sleeves and have become very dingy with some set in stains. I have bleached them, used Oxy Cleaner and have bought RIT whitener. Nothing seems to help. We have hard sulfur water which is a lot of the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions that would help.

The nuns use to use automatic dish washer detergent, make a paste for spots otherwise just add a half cup to whites.

Here is the recipe that my daughters' coach gave us for their white softball pants (mind you, this was 20 years ago)

1/3 Cup bleach

1/2 Cup Cascade

Bring to boil in a large pot on the stove, being sure crystals have dissolved. Add pants. Turn off stove and let cool. Add pants and liquid to wash.

Have you tried using 1/2 a cup of Vinegar? I've been doing this for about a week and it's amazing as to how much whiter my whites are.
