Does anyone know how to get out a Maraschino cherry stain?

Have you tried soaking it in Oxyclean? I found if you use HOT HOT water first to disolve the Oxyclean, then add in some cooler water to soak the item in, it works really well.
Here is a copycat recipe for Oxyclean from
Homemade 'Oxygen' Cleaner Recipe #32716
The name brand is expensive but this is an inexpensive alternative and less harmful to your clothes than bleach!
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide
It removes even old blood stains!
Just soak the clothing in it for 20 minutes to overnight and then wash as usual.
This will not harm fabric like bleach.
It doesn't seem to harm colors either!
