PROCEDURE: Make a paste of baking soda and water and apply to the stain. When the baking soda paste is dry, brush or vacuum the area. Then dip a sponge in alcohol and blot the remaining stain. Turn the sponge as it absorbs the stain. When no more color is being removed, flush with cool water and allow to dry. To remove any remaining stains, dip a sponge in ammonia and blot. Flush with warm water and dry with paper towels. If the stains persist, a solution of 1 teaspoon of chlorine bleach to 1 tablespoon of water might be applied to the stain with a dropper. Do not apply this solution to the stains for more than 2 minutes. Flush with water immediately to remove all traces of the bleach solution and dry with paper towels. Special Note: Work the stain from the outer edges toward the center, confining the stain.
