Thank you for using JustAnswer!You can use rubbing alcohol or alcohol-based hair spray. Dab the stain with the alcohol or hair spray. Give it a couple of minutes to work. Blot the stain with layers of white paper towel that's also dampened with the rubbing alcohol or hairspray.It has been my pleasure to assist you today with your information needs.

Another approach is to soak the stain in milk overnight, then launder as usual.
