Janice, I've got a husband in the military so I feel for you. If I catch it right away I can get them out with white vinegar and water. 3/4 vinegar and 1/4 water. I hope this helps you.

The vinegar works wonders! I was surprised it got out a stain that had set for a few hours and pretty much dried. Thank you so much!

Just tried regular rubbing alcohol that you find in the medicine cabinet, (70%), alcohol content. I poured it right on the black stain and blotted with white paper towels. Got out the black shoe dye....yes dye, out in seconds. Come to think of it there is a dye remover wherever you find shoe dye to prep the shoes when dyeing them. That will probably do a nice job as well.

You can try Spot Shot. I once got out hair dye from a carpet with it, but be sure to blot not rub.
