Curtains are expensive! But I have some old ones -- can I bleach them white?

I have some 100% cotton tabbed curtains from Target in goldenrod/wheaty yellow. The fabric seems pretty sturdy (they're not sheers).
Can I bleach them in the washer? It wouldn't be a tragedy if I botched the job, but I'm hoping to get them as white as possible without a lot of variegation. Also preferably without causing any holes, since that would lower their essential curtain-ness, and force me to tell guests I've invented some new offshoot of shabby-chic.
