Problems With Polyester?I have a polyester (synthetic at any rate) shirt from the 1970's (sentimentally very valuable!) that is covered in a black, orange and white motif. In the wash, the white has turned gray, I suppose because of the nearby black. Additionally, on one of the white sections, there are two or three dark gray streaks. I tried a soak in Ammonia but it did nothing.
