I have a large box of sand dollars that I would like to clean and use for crafts. What do I use to make them white like the ones you buy?

Put them in a sink or plastic dishpan, cover with warm water, add 1/2 cup bleach and some more warm water to mix the bleach around. If all the discoloration doesn't soak out, repeat. If you are worried about doing this, just try one sand dollar to start with.
I would soak them in bleach for 10 minutes and see how they look. Be sure to wash them thoroughly with mild dish soap or baby shampoo after the bleach soaking.
