Weird stains

I wore a new top yesterday for an appointment. When I got home I noticed tiny purplish dots near the neckline. They look like they could be blueberry or blackberry dots. I had blackberries on my oatmeal in the morning, but was wearing my workout clothes. So no clue what they are

Tried my usual stain remover (hand wash in cold water with Fels Napa bar). Nope. Still there. Tried Shout to no avail. Any ideas on what else I could try? I only wore the top twice.

Can you post photo?

Where was your appointment? Could you have picked up ink stains somewhere? Dye from your mask?

I second Amiga's recommendation. It has worked wonders on all our stains.

Whatever you use leave it on for 24chours and then wash. I find that helps a lot!

I showered after I ate breakfast and put the top on just before going to the appointment (doctor). I had to do a little ironing on it before wearing so I know it wasnít already there. Such a mystery! It wasnít real expensive so I guess it isnít a big deal. When the sun comes out I think I will put it in the sun. Sometimes that works. I will check out that stain remover, too!

Thanks!

Before you do anything else, stretch it over a colander and pour boiling water from a height through the stain. If it's a berry stain, it will come right out. It sounds like an old wives' tale but it works like a charm.

My new favorite stain remover

I love this stuff. It's for carpet stains, but I also use it on laundry. (Check for colorfastness) It got a years old stain out of my daughter's carpet in minutes. I also got spaghetti sauce off kid's clothes easy peasy.

Could there have been something on your seatbelt that transferred to your new top? Hope something works to remove it.
