    Run Away. It is sold in the laundry section and it does wonders.

    What's the cardi made of? There are products available that remove due runs ( used them myself) and they worked a treat, just read instructions to see if material is ok to use

    Run away works after it has dried. But don't do aything else for now. And get 2 sachets in case the first doesn't quite do the job.

    So dont keep the garment wet and let it dry then? I thought it would be the opposite

    I've had it work on dry items but can't be sure which is best.

    Here is a link to the actual name of the product - their website might have more informations.

    Thanks for that

    Can i ask when u have used it was it spot stained in patches or was the garment discoloured all over?

    Just interested to know as the website says if its spot stained in patches it can be harder to remove.

    It has been a while but it was a pair of cotton drill pants and they were sort of mottled, definitely not even colour. it works for you.

    If that leaves anything behind, maybe then move on to non coloursafe bleach.
