How Can I Remove Dye Transfer on Silk Pants?

I have done a stupid thing and hand washed 100% silk pants that are dry clean only. They are red with white flowers on them. The red dye has bled into the white. I know I can't use Rit on them, being silk.


Is there any way I can do a spot-clean style stain removal on the white flower part? I'm really stuck, and want to fix it. Any advice would be awesome.

When washing garments were the dye runs off the fabric add some sea salt and that helps to keep the dye in.
