Hi Gammy, I live in Oz, but you might be able to buy the same products where you are. In the laundry section of the supermarket there are a number of products that can take a stain away. One of the products is called Synthrapol soap. It is used by quilters to get rid of bleeding. Another product is called OxyClean, that I've had recommended.

Perhaps other quilters know of other products that will help? Please let me and Gammy know, it's great information for all.
Cheerio for now

There is a product made by RITZ dyes called RUNAWAY that has always worked for me. Don't know if you can find it where you live or not.

I live in Australia and you dont need any brand product just natural yoghurt painted on to the colour run and allow to sit over night and then wash it out and voila the run will be gone

Hi

The yoghurt does work well on stains. I have had the pleasure during emergencies and I'm glad you were able to remove the stain.
