I would take them back as you planned only go all the way to water.Then go
to 0.5-1% acid alcohol to destain (about 1-3 minutes). Wash in water then
rinse in distilled.Have you seen Charles Churukian's Staining Manual?
Besides all of the wonderful microwave methods there is a ton of useful
information such as destaining, shelf life of solutions/stains, how to get
specific stains out of clothing, hands and glassware. It is very reasonable
