Getting rid of the colored shadows.

Hi everyone

I'm trying to get the right white out of this mix of colors on this piece of an (ugly) curtain.


First, I added a hue/saturation level, then a selective color level to subtract a bit of red from the white, and finally a channel mixer one. I get this result:


Even though it is better now, I'm still not very happy with it, because there are still shadows and an ugly red, yellow (or whatever) visible on the curtain (look at the red signs I drew on the second picture, and it doesn't look natural anymore.
I would like to get rid of all those colored dark shadows, and get an even, natural white.

Can you help me to obtain a more decent image?

Thank you.
