It's not bleach. I have PUL with the same issue and I have never used bleach or peroxide. I have never even owned a bottle of bleach so not a possibility.

Interesting. I wonder what it is. I have one blossom Flip that it happened to and one other cover I cant think of right now. The blossom is not even one of my oldest covers.

I have this same issue. I think it may be rust, as we have well water and a softener, but still unacceptably high levels of iron. It stains our toilets red. I'd be interested to hear more opinions.

It just happened on one wash? I have issues with rust every time they flush the hydrants around here. I wonder if something like that happened? I have ugly rust stains on an entire load of laundry from the last time they did this.

Re: what causes yellow/briwn pul amd Velcro..

I have some velcro on my Kawaii pockets that has yellowed, but it did not happen suddenly. It is only on the oldest ones that have been on in use for 7 months now. I have extremely hard water and also get yellowing on my bathtub and around water fixtures which is the same color. I assumed it was from that since I didn't start adding bleach to every load until about 4 months ago. None of my newer aplix has discolored (yet).

Re: what causes yellow/briwn pul amd Velcro..

I think it's some sort of mineral from your water. I've also had temporarily rusty water when they flushed the hydrants.
