      Hi Tanya! I have not had this come up before, but it would be worth a try to use straight peroxide and if that doesn't work, a mixture of vinegar and baking soda?

      When I Googled your question here's what I got:

      Mix one tablespoon of liquid hand dishwashing detergent; one-half cup distilled white vinegar and two cups of warm water. Use a clean white cloth to blot this solution into the stain. Work from the outside edges toward the center to prevent spreading the stain.

      I hope it helps! :)

  • Great post. I would just say that, people need to be careful when using products that contain verbage "oxy" in them. They can cause bleaching in the areas treated, especially on natural fibers.
