I see your post/question is a couple of months old - so you may have tried

removal treatments already.

I can tell you what will take stains right out of just about anything, but this

only works under one condition.

Pure water (not tap water from the faucet), but (bottled water) as it's very

pure. You must saturate a clean cloth with the bottled water, and lay that

on the area, and the stain will break up and come right out of any fabric

if it's left on for a couple of hours (or less).

Now here's the condition that bottled water will work.

The fabric cannot be previously treated with (tap water or soap).

The reason being, there's chemicals and mineral deposits in tap

water, and those will set the stain into most fabrics *fibers*.

Then trying to remove some stains becomes next to impossible,

because it's then set permanently into the finest fibers that make

up the fabric.

So next time, once a stain from something gets onto fabric, (bottled water) or reverse osmosis water applied on it - will remove it.

No soap is even needed. Just blot up with a paper towel.

Soaps too are basically something that causes a loosening of substances, breaking them apart so the soiled area lifts.

But, the chemicals those contain, and then used on certain fabrics - can actually cause a deposit of the substances color to remain in the fibers of the fabric too.

That's why "nothing but bottled water - pure water" has the capacity to break apart molecules, allowing the substance spilled to be removed along with it's pigments/coloring, and then blotted right up after it's been saturated with the pure water.

Try it on any stain (that has not been pre-treated with soap or tap water).

You'll see, it's quite impressive.
