Try using white vinegar in your shampooer. Mix it with water, and do a test spot first. It will clean the shampooer too!

    I would NOT use vinegar, as vinegar is used to set color. It’s used when dying Easter eggs with food coloring.

    What might work is some Clorox 2 color safe bleach. I used it when a red shirt got thrown into a load of laundry and the red shirt turned the laundry streaky red & pink and it got all the streaks out of the laundry.

    Rit makes a color remover. You’ll find that with the fabric dyes. You might even try Oxy-Clean.

    Good luck!
