Default Need help FAST! Getting out red stains with no stain remover etc

I was wearing my friend's white shirt while making a red chicken enchilada casserole (I have no idea why...don't ask). I ended up getting enchilada sauce all over it. I'm at my apartment so I literally have NO washer, no drier, no stain removers, no laundry detergent, no NOTHING. As soon as I noticed, I pulled it off, scribbled on the stains with a Tide pen and then scrubbed at the shirt with dish soap. It's in the sink soaking in dish soap and water right now. A lot of the stains seem to have come out already but there's a few small stubborn ones left. Does anyone have any clue how I can get them out? I have no car but I would be willing to walk down to the store or take a bus if I absolutely have to.

Do you have any seltzer or club soda? The bubbles help get stains out. Dish soap is a good start....try scrubbing some more now that it's soaked for a while.

Good luck!

I have had great success using a mix of water (2 parts), peroxide (1 part) and dish/hand soap (just a small amount) to remove dark stains from light clothing, furniture, carpets, etc. Put it right on the stain and let it sit for several minutes, then blot and/or rub lightly with a towel. Rinse the shirt well afterward (or put it through the washer) to remove any residual peroxide.
