Care and Washing
Most items made from lace should be hand washed using cool water and a mild detergent. Avoid vigorous scrubbing, which will distort the fibers. Rinse well and do not wring to remove water, gently squeeze instead.

Yellowing occurs when the original fibres of the fabric undergo chemical degradation due to quality problems with the textile. The white and pastel fabrics eventually start decaying, giving the typical wedding dress a light-to-medium yellow colour.
How do you get yellow stains out of antique linens?
Use phosphate-free soaps made for delicate fabrics if possible, and rinse thoroughly with cool, clear water. If the garment has yellowed, you may want to try soaking it in cool water using a product like OxiClean.

Oxygen-based bleach like OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover is gentle on vintage or fragile fabrics such as lace and tulle, and even old, set-in stains can be removed or significantly lightened to brighten a white item and get it ready to wear for the big day.

Old stains may be impossible to remove. After decades, old stains may be set by repeated washing and drying. Try soaking the fabric in an enzyme textile cleaner diluted with water before laundering. Or add a nonchlorine bleach to the wash water.
How do you clean handmade lace?
