How to Remove Yellow Stains on Canvas

Q: Canvas Stains I have a canvas tote bag and there are yellowed stains on the bag. The bag is white, so is it safe to bleach it? Or does that turn it yellow? Should I just take it to a dry cleaner? -- Karla Reply (Ref:0725)

Answer ref 0725 Canvas Stains.  I got yellow stains on my white canvas tennis shoes by trying to bleach them to remove dirt. I was able to remove the yellow bleach stains by soaking the shoes in a solution of 1/2 cup cream of tartar (I bought it from a store that sells bulk spices) and 1 quart of hot (almost boiling) water. The tip I read said to soak for 30 minutes, but it took 1-1/2 hours for my shoes. -- TD Pitts   10/07/2004 Note this will probably only work for white items with yellow stains caused by chlorine bleach. - Ed
