1. Blot the stain immediately with paper towels. If it is a dry clean only garment do not pretreat the stain and get it as fast as you can to the cleaners. Pretreatment of the stain can cause irreversible damage and the dry cleaner may not be able to remove the stain.
2. Combine 1 teaspoon laundry soap (or dish soap, like Dawn) and 1 cup hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Soak a clean sponge in the mixture, squeeze it halfway dry, then gently blot the stain.
3. Place a dry towel or washcloth between the front and back of the garment if the stain has not penetrated through to the back of the fabric. This will prevent staining on the back of the material.
4. Review the washing instructions on the label of the fabric. Heed any special care instructions.
5. Wash in cool water and air dry if the fabric is machine-washable.
5. Wash gently in the sink with a mild detergent if the fabric is hand-wash only.
