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
