I do not know what Santelli is, since I fence in Europe, all we get is
Allstar, Uhlmann, France Lames etc.
But if there is a yellow inside, which means Kevlar or simular, you can
clean was it with a bleach based washing powder (something which will
make it nice and white) but NEVER put it outside to dry, sunlight is
wat will reduce the strength rappidly.
(If I am honest I think you are to late and better get a new pair,
take that one out of the bag everytime you fenced in it and wash
regularly and give it enough time to dry....)
If your nickers are all white (originally that is) I cannot give you
advice because I don't know the chemical resistance of that fabric.
