Whitening Yellowed Sleeves on a Green Jacket

I have an older Jets jacket, the white sleeves have turned yellow from storage.
How can I get yellow out and make white again! The jacket is green.

If washable, wash the jacket with color safe bleach.

You do not say what type of material but if it has aged very much you may have to wash more than one time. Different materials will react differently with many types of cleaning products.

I believe most of these jackets were made of either nylon or polyester but check to be sure before you start the cleaning process.
If your jacket looks on the delicate side, I would place it in a nylon net lingerie bag just to be safe.

Some sites recommend using lemon juice but since your jacket is green you cannot use lemon juice or it will fade the green parts.

Oxygen bleach is a good choice as well as just good laundry detergent.


Let the jacket soak in any solution for 0 minutes to even overnight for best results.

Here is a site that has several suggestions but do not use the one stating to use lemon.
