  • It's going to be tough now that they've been through the dryer. Heat sets stains and makes them nearly impossible to get out. You may have to do several applications of something. I want to say try alcohol, but I'm not sure on that. you could try oxy-clean and scrub them a bit after spraying them.

  • Thanks, I'm going to try the gel stuff and let in sit in for a few days and see if that works.
