Press pad firmly onto the stain each time you check it. Keep stain and pad moist with alcohol.  7. Flush with water.  8. If any stain remains, use chlorine bleach as, directed in step 9. Chlorine bleach should not be used on certain fabrics. Test an inconspicuous area of fabric to be sure it will not be discolored. Use a solution of 1 teaspoon bleach to 1 tablespoon water. Apply with a dropper. Do not allow this solution to remain on the fabric more than 2 minutes. When the stain is removed, or after 2 minutes, flush with water onto clean absorbent material. Apply 1 teaspoon vinegar and again flush with water. Be sure that all bleach is removed.
