Removing Stains from Antique Crochet Dollies

I have several antique, cotton doilies my great-grandmother made. They were originally white. Some have a few tan stains on them, but the one I feel nervous about is obviously a food stain. It's purple/red, could be beets, blackberries, or even dark grape juice. The rest of the piece is white. How do I remove this difficult stain?

many different things can be used on stains

  • always test each method in one inconspicuous corner so that you don't ruin the pieces
  • lemon juice
  • lemon juice + baking soda to create an acid-base explosion which can eliminate odours and stains
  • hydrogen peroxide
  • enzymatic cleaners can be good and are fairly natural for stains, odours, etc of an organic nature
  • if they're all meant to be white, you could also just bleach them in a very diluted bleach solution
