Combine 4 tablespoons of baking soda and 1/4 cup of water. Dab on the stain until it’s gone, and then wash.
Dilute household ammonia with an equal amount of water, and pour onto the stain. You don’t need to let it sit before washing; just toss it in.
Dilute hydrogen peroxide with an equal amount of water; apply to the stain, and let sit for 30 minutes before washing. Don’t use hydrogen peroxide on colors, as it does have similar properties to bleach.
