  • I know most people don't have this just lying around the house but Lye soap. It will take any stain out of anything. My MIL makes lye soap so we always have plenty of it around the house.

  • Peroxide sounds great, I will try that myself if needed....... (I always hated spray and wash, it Never got out most stains, I use SHOUT everyday on stuff.... it has always taken out all stains for me), but in this case Peroxide like mentioned sounds great.
