Water Stains on a Crocheted Bedspread

I have an antique crocheted bedspread. Water leaked into the cedar chest where I was storing it and now it has brownish cedar stains on it. How can I remove these stains and not wreck the bedspread?

Soak it in water softener. It's extremely gentle. Put cold water in a bucket large enough to hold the coverlet, drop a handful or somewhat less of water softener into the bucket, stir until dissolved. Drop the coverlet in and let soak-an hour is usually plenty of time. hot water can set stains, as do many soaps, so be careful. White King is the brand I know, there may be others.

Laying it out in the sun would likely help it as well.
