Blot the spill to remove excess liquid or stain.
Wet the area with a minimal amount of water and let soak for 1 minute. After, blot with a white paper towel. Repeat water/blot procedure until no color is being soaked up into the towel. Blot dry.
If the stain is persistent, moisten area with water. Apply a small mixed amount of detergent/water and work into stained area with a sponge and blot. Repeat detergent/water application until no color is being soaked up into the towel.
Rinse with clear water to remove traces of detergent and blot dry. It is important to remove all traces of detergent to prevent rapid resoiling.
Rinse with a 50/50 vinegar/water solution and blot dry.
