Title:

My white coat is now grey! Help!

Text:

I have a Patagonia down coat that started out white and another one that's orange.  They are worn daily around town and travel to the woods, beach and mountains with me.  Both have seen so much action that the sleeves (and cuffs!) are a filthy dark grey.  I've washed them with down wash at least 4 times and even used diluted stain remover directly on the worst areas.  It hasn't made a difference.  The coats are not only down but also DWR so I've tried to be gentle.

Is there anything else I can do to clean them?  There's nothing functionally wrong with the coats so I want to be able to keep using them.  Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Thank you!!
