    Did you leave them in clear view of a window? They must have soaked up the sun :teehee:

    Next time rub SPF 100 on them? Or just put them in a black bag.

    An actual suggestion for your problem would be: Timpsons. If they don't whiten just by a normal cold wash and some stain spray then take 'em to the cleaners.

    wash them with bleach, but be careful that could also ruin this, but bleach does bring the whiteness back Ive tried this before, check on a small area first though.
