  • try letting them soak in oxy clean, don't let them will be harder once the dye dries on there...

  • Pre spray with one of the stain removers which says on it- removes set in stain. I can't remember which one it is, but it is worth a try. You can also try to soak in an Ajax mixture which is color safe. It will take quite awhile, just put warm water in the sink and add ajax, mix it around and let them sit. In a couple of hours you will know if it is working or not. If you can get it, at our dollar stores here there is a cleaner called Awesome. If you can find it, try it 1st. I am amazed at the product. It has removed ink, lipstick and all kind of other hard to remove stains. Good luck.

  • whenever something like that happens please remember that if you dry them the stains will set. I would just keep washing and washing and dont dry them.
