how to get stain out of white kit

Can somebody help me with this. I have a white kit and some of the red dye from my saddle has transfered onto the bibs where my "cheeks" are. I've tried the usual laundry stain removers and nothing has worked. Needless to say I have changed saddles, but I really want to get the red out as much as possible without ruining the bibs. Any suggestions on a safe way to do this? Thanks.

Oxy clean or stain remover or what you should have done in the beginning. Buy black shorts or at least black where you sit.
No one should ever buy white shorts unless they can afford to throw them away after they stain or get threadbare.

Soak them in nappie-san over night not too strong mix or they will rot the lycra.

make sure you rinse it all out the seat pad or it may burn when you sweat and you end up with blisters on your BUM

use black knicks it easier.

The last sentence should simply read: No one should ever buy white shorts.

I used my first post on that bit of wisdom...
