I bought off-white curtains and washed them per the instructions. They came out with yellow streaks. How can I get rid of them?

Try soaking the curtains with some generic oxyclean. Don't waste your money on the brand name product. I buy the generic oxyclean at either Dollar General or Family Dollar.
If the oxyclean doesn't work try Rit Dye Remover.
Try washing them again but this time only use "Oxy-Clean" & no detergent. If this doesn't work, try adding 2 can's of regular (not sugar free) Coca-Cola to your wash (not at the same time as the Oxy-Clean. If this doesn't work, pour hydrogen peroxide directly on the stains (after testing for colorfastness first)
* Are you a smoker or is any one in your family? This is one cause of yellow streaks.
I'm not a smoker. These are brand new curtains that I just bought and washed, maybe something is wrong with my washer.
