Cleaning Old Embroidered Pillowcases With Yellow Stains

How do I clean/whiten old pillowcases that are stained yellow and have a few rust spots without bleaching out the embroidery on the case?

As a general rule sunshine and water will remove most storage yellow stains but may not remove any other type stain completely. I would start with just wetting the case and lay it in the sunshine and keep wetting it for a day. See how this does before attempting any other solution as your case may also be weakened and any other solutions may damage the material. Be sure to use a lingerie bag when washing to keep them from a lot of motion/twisting.

Mild cleaners also help - such as baking soda is good to use in your washing machine for getting clothes clean. Many people still use bluing also - just for getting things bright white but I have never used this - baking soda (with a little laundry detergent) and sunshine never damage your clothes but do a good job of cleaning.
I'm sure other posters will also give you some good suggestions.

Try washing in borax and drying in the sun.

We use baking soda with our detergent and air dry in the sun. Good luck!
