Hi. A number of white synthetic rugs that i have cleaned have turned yellow in recent times. Any ideas on how to restore them to their original white colour. The most recent one is a turkish 3d Mafy. Your help will be most appreciated.

You really need to put some pictures up and let us know how you cleaned them. What method and chems were used. It could be a ph issue is the only thing that comes to mind. That would be caused by leaving them on the alkaline side of the scale. Exactly what cleaners were used?

Good Morning. Thank you for your response. Please see attached pictures. I used low foam carpet cleaning detergent in the original wash. I then attempted to remove the yellowing using Vanish Carpet Stain remover.

Looks almost like you wetted some areas that had "sneaky pee" and they bloomed up.
