Washing Sails

Just returned from the laundromat after washing a sail in one of their 6 load washers. I used 1 cup of TSP (tri-sodium phosphate) and 1 cup of bleach.

Yes it got all of the dirt out, but am a bit disappointed in that it seems to have taken on a tinge of yellow?

Do you think that it was a mistake to use bleach, and perhaps I should have used some other type of whitening?
