If table has lacquer finish, mineral spirits will not harm the finish. Perhaps using #0000 superfine steel wool and mineral spirits, rubbing in direction of wood grain would remove dye stain.
Another option is to try blotting dye stains with chlorine bleach on paper towel or white rag would lift dye stain. Some forum posters report success using Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to remove dye stains from furniture finish. Depending on severity of stain, table may have to be refinished. If in doubt, consult with a furniture refinisher.
