Hi there Alix,

Similar situations have happened to me more times than I can count. Basically, from what I've been told, the brown stain is burned sugar.

In these circumstances, I relegate the item to "Saturday/after school clothing," meaning that I wear it when it doesn't matter and every time it goes through the laundry, I scrub extra soap (I use liquid Tide) into the stain before washing. After about 15-20 washes, the stain finally goes away.

Most folks would probably opt for the "credit card to the mall" but I'm stingy...

Hope this helps!

Can you still buy Carbon Tetrachloride? My mom used to use it on stains, and it worked great.

We get by with a little help from our friends
