I can't remember the name but there is a product you will find on the detergent additive area that will take some or most of the yellow out. As long as they are all white it will do a good job. I use it frequently on tshirts DH pulls from the back of his closet.
I've never had the HP ruin anything white, however I did spray the dilution on a blue shirt once and it left it a few shades lighter where I sprayed, leaving it an "around the house shirt" only. It was 100% cotton.

Back in the day when nurses wore white uniforms a neighbor soaked her polyester unis in a solution of dissolved dishwasher detergent before washing without adding any laundry detergent. That said, because formulas have evolved (chemicals and dyes), try using a cup of distilled vinegar & hot water. Whatever suggestion you try, if stains remain try another before putting the garment in a drier.

If you are not a fan of using chemicals in fear of ruining your shirts there are also some natural products you can use.
For example, for any white dress shirts you can crush two aspirins and mix with a 1/2 cup of warm water. Soak the shirt in the solution for two to three hours and then I agree with everyone else let it dry in the sun.
For all dress shirts any color, dissolve 4 tbsp. of salt in 1 quart of hot water. Use a clean rag and press the solution into the shirt until the stain disappears.
I use the salt trick on my fiancé's dress shirts. It takes a little bit of time so I usually do it while watching tv, but he is always amazed with the difference it makes.
I got out my DS baby clothes last year that had been stored for 25 years. They had the same stains. I came here for advice. I ended up soaking them over night in a bucket of hot water with Tide Vivid w/Bleach Color Safe and Oxyclean. The stains came out and they were so bright, just like new!
