    Tea stains

    50 some years ago in science class I learned that for a burn to put a wet tea bag on it until the pain eases. Well, today I steamed burned my finger will doing the final press on a quilt top I've been working on. Stupid me kept the tea bag wrapped around my finger and continued to press. You guessed it...dripped a bit here and there on the cream colored fabric. What was I thinking??? I know stains have been talked about before, but can you remind me how to get rid of them? Thank you in advance, all the ladies here are great everyday of the week!!

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    I haven't used it for tea specifically, but I've been really impressed with "Grandma's Secret Spot Remover". I've removed old blood and ink from fabrics with it so far - no stains left behind and no bleaching (one item was a bright cherry red polo shirt - no sign of the ink left and no pale spot either). It's pretty inexpensive - I've bought it from Amazon and also found it on the "impulse item" shelf at my LQS cash register.
