1. As soon as possible, blot the stain with a white paper towel or cloth to absorb excess liquid.

2. Run under cool water to keep stain from setting.

3. Treat with a bit of pure glycerin (available at drugstores or natural-food stores). Leave it on for five minutes, then rinse.

4. Now, the secret weapon: liquid dish detergent, madeto remove the dyes in food! Choose a basic one-clear or white and unscented- and blot onto stain.

5. Rinse again in cool water.

6. If the stain is still there, switch to plan B, a 1:2 mixture of white vinegar and water. Soak until the stain dissipates (if it's not gone within an hour, change the solution and try again), then repeat steps 2-5.
