has the clothing been dried? if so that may of set the stain.. cotton is very absorbent so it will be tought to remove..other than trying blotting hydrogen peroxide over the area on a rag..nothing comes to mind

Follow these steps to remove food coloring and hair dye stains from Cotton and Linen:

* Soak in a solution of 1 quart warm water, 1/2 teaspoon dishwashing detergent, and 1 tablespoon ammonia for 30 minutes.
* Rinse with water.
* Apply rubbing alcohol and tamp (the method of bringing a brush down with light strokes on stained durable fabrics and materials) or scrape (the method of using a scraping tool to gently lift off excess solid or caked-on stains).
* Keep the stain moist with alcohol and blot occasionally.
* Continue as long as stain is being removed.
* Flush with water and allow to dry.
* Launder as soon as possible.
