    It's not a stain in the house, but I figured you guys might have a little advice. I was eating a red popsicle, and it dripped on my khaki pants. I waited 10 minutes to start the stain removal. I have tried the clorox bleach pen, oxy clean, and some other solution. It has faded a lot, but it's not gone!

    Try dawn dish soap mixed with warm water and vinegar. I think that's the right solution...could be wrong though.

    The hydrogen peroxide and dish detergent solution worked wonderfully! It took some time and effort, but it was well worth it. I used it on a red wine stain that was dry but only a few hours old.

    You can also try using bleach for colored clothes for heavier stains.

    The hydrogen peroxide and detergent solution sounds good. I too had similar stain and will try this out.
