Bleaching Old Yellowed Garments

I have a tatted baby cap that was handmade for me in 1948. I would like for my granddaughter to wear it for her christening. Her dress is white and the little cap has “yellowed” and is an ecru color. Could I bleach it? What would you suggest to whiten it without harming it?
Thank you so much

Hi Susan,
Soak the cap in mild detergent and about 2 T of OxiClean®. This stuff works wonders on vintage textiles. Rinse carefully by hand.
