Always read and follow the care instructions and any warnings on the garment label. And, follow the General Rules for washable fabric stain removal.
Act fast, and blot and never rub a stain. Rubbing forces the stain deeper into the fabric.
Soak in cold water.
Saturate the area with an aerosol pretreatment laundry stain remover. Wait a couple of minutes to allow it to penetrate. Rub with a heavy duty liquid laundry detergent and then launder immediately in hottest water safe for the fabric.
If the color remains, launder in chlorine bleach if safe for the fabric or in oxygen bleach (Always read and follow the care instructions on the garment label with respect to the use of bleach, and check for color fastness. Bleach should not be used on items containing spandex).
For extra heavy stains, apply dry-cleaning fluid to the back of the stain over white, absorbent paper towels. Let it dry. Then, rinse and proceed as above. Always read the label and proceed carefully when using dry cleaning fluid.
