What about normal white tees? I noticed my white tees are turning yellow. Some of them have designs on them so am not too sure if it's advisable to use bleach.

I know screen prints can withstand....oscar previously said transfers are OK. However...some tees 70 and prior used an ink process which wouldn't hold up. Run your fingers over the design...if there's slight texture ...you should be OK. Here's the original guide:

@tupper I've found that soaking vintage white tees with Oxy Clean in hot water works really well at getting the white to come back to life. Just make sure the Oxy powder is completely dissolved in the water and don't soak for too long. Maybe 15 minutes or so should do the trick.
