How do I remove stains from my son’s khakis?

Dear Cleaning Lady,

Is there any way to remove color that has bled on other clothes in the laundry? My little boy had a pair of white socks with a tiny red stripe that ended up staining a pair of his brand new khakis. AAAAHHH!

Thanks for your advice…

Dear Jamie,

Assuming the khakis are cotton, try washing them again with hot water, laundry soap and ammonia.  You could also rub one of those laundry stain removal sticks on the spots before you throw it in the wash again.  Don’t dry them until you have tried to get the stains out a few more times.  This may not come out, but it is worth a few tries!
