Has this happened to anyone else for any figure clothing? The white shirt that came included with my NXT Elite No Way Jose has yellowed really badly. My mom is a smoker and I suspect that's what could have done it, but I'm not entirely certain.
Is there a method anyone knows of that can restore this shirt back to its natural white?

While I have not experienced this exact scenario, I have order a lot of 3 figures and received them smelling what was clearly smoke. Similarly, the figures were covered in a greyish residue and the colors looks a little faded imo. One of the figures was a Stone Cold in jeans, but the jeans looks like they have lost their vibrancy. I'm questioning whether or not this is the case, but considering I had to wipe them down with a Clorox wipe to remove that grey gunk, I wouldn't be surprised.

I have been experience this issue with alot of my figures with white plastic and my home is a smoke free home. I seen many people use hydrogen peroxide, but i'm afraid to use that method because the decals/ designs on the figure might fade.

I don't know if it's different for clothes, but you can whiten LEGO (ABS plastic) by putting them in a vat of hydrogen peroxide and leaving it in the sun. Apparently a reaction with oxygen/sunlight is what yellows plastic, and a reaction with oxygen/sunlight is also what whitens it, go figure.

Thank you for the replies everyone. I haven't heard about the hydrogen peroxide method so that might be the route to go. I'll test it out on some old Lego first before trying Jose's shirt. There is a decal on the back that I don't want to risk losing if the peroxide is too strong.
