  1. Rinse and blot the fabric

    Rinse the fabric with cold water as soon as possible. If you are not able to rinse the fabric immediately, blot it with a baby wipe. Move from the outside of the stain inwards, so the stain does not spread out. After blotting, rinse the shirt thoroughly with cold water.

  2. Flush the stains

    Use cold water to continuously flush the stain. Work from the back of the stain forward, so that the stain does not spread. When the water comes through the fabric, expect the water to be off-color. Continue flushing until the water is clear all the way through.

  3. Soak the fabric overnight

    Examine your fabric for any tag or identifying material that specifies the maximum allowable heat for that type of garment. Once you know what the highest heat allowable for your fabric is, fill a sink with hot water of that temperature. Submerge the fabric in the hot water, and allow it to soak overnight. Once the stain is gone, dry as normal in the morning.
