My son had his great grandmother's quilt and brought it back all yellow. I'm really upset about this and just bought some Mary Ellen's Best Wash. Is this a good idea and will it work? This is a grandmother's flower garden design and is quite old.

It might work, and it might not. Definitely worth a try, though.
Do you have any idea what the yellowing was caused by? like...
Heavy use?
Smoking?
Stored in a plastic bag?

iPad's auto-correct is my enema.

I'm not sure how it got yellow. I think he stored it in a plastic storage container. I wish I knew how to get this white.
