Are LDS garments dyed white?
From the sister workers I spoke with, I learned that the fabric used for all garment fabrics is dyed white.

You will get yellowed garments after multiple washings with regular bleach.
What are LDS temple garments?
A temple garment, also referred to as garments, the garment of the holy priesthood, or Mormon underwear, is a type of underwear worn by adherents of the Latter Day Saint movement after they have taken part in the endowment ceremony.
Can you bleach garments?
Add 1/4 cup of bleach to 1 gallon of water and soak the clothes for only 5 to 10 minutes; any more, and you’ll start to break down the fabric. If you have stains on pastel, colorfast clothes, try soaking them in all-fabric bleach, which is gentler than chlorine bleach.
