Cleaning Stained White Artificial Christmas Tree

As I unpacked my tree, I noticed that there are brown stains on certain branches. Thought maybe it was from the box, also considered nicotine. Anyone had this experience? How would I clean?

Thanks,
Lynn

I would try simple soaking in a vinegar bath and swishing......maybe add a little dish soap......bleach may yellow it, so I'd avoid that unless recommended by the maufacturer.......

I have same problem, just certain branches. Any good resolutions to this problem? Perhaps store in blue paper like wedding dresses?

what causes the white branches to turn yellow? could packing it using blue paper and wrapping it in a white sheet help or not?

thanks so much

Cleaning: Mix equal parts of peroxide and hot water in a spray bottle. Mist thoroughly and let stand for 5 minutes. Then spray again and wipe with white cloth. Removes nicotine stains and cardboard staining. May need to be repeated.

Preventing yellowing: Line box with white trash bag and put a box of refrigerator baking soda in box with tree.
