However if the stains are deep (such as coffee & wine) put a drop of dishwashing liquid/shampoo in warm water and continue to blot with cloth. Make sure to do this while the stain is fresh. You may need to rub gently to reach the base of the hair. Continue to dampen the cloth and rub until the stain is removed.
