      You could try soaking in oxyclean, or applying a paste of it. Or rubbing with lemon and salt and leaving in the sun. It's probably not going to come clean, unfortunately.


      Unfortunately the only thing that works properly is bleach.

      two things that work are soaking them in vinegar (1 cup in a bucket of water) or washing with borax, add borax to hot water to dissolve it and then put it in the machine with the washing.

      I'll add borax to my list of things to try. Vinegar didn't work for me.

      Vanish powder is the same as oxy, I think? It faded it, but didn't remove it fully.

      Myzz I got some the last time at a Chemists - I think it was a Lloyds but am not 100% and there is a shop near me that has it, it is a sort of hardware store.

      No luck with vinegar, I'll have to find borax.
