Eek! Help please!

I've discovered that my son's jeans, jumper and jacket've got covered in luminous green yuck from a glo- stick that someone threw around at our bonfire party.
I've washed the clothers, but the green spots and splashes remain. Not sure what this stuff consists of - is it some type of phosphorous? And...anyone know how I can get rid of it please?
Tia.

What happens if I get the chemicals on my clothes?

With normal use this is not an issue, but if you happen to puncture the outer tube and get fluid on your clothes simply wash with warm soapy water. In case of accidental spillage:
* Skin/Body - wash affected area with water.
* Clothing - Wash stained area with warm soapy water and allow soaking for 24 hrs if stain remains dry cleaning is advised.

Found this here, Icey.

Thank you MWB - some good info there.
Unfortunately, as I said at first, I HAVE washed the clothes, but the dye remains. It's not as bright as it was, but refuses to come out. Very annoying, because the jacket cost a lot of money and it's a pale-coloured one, so the green looks terrible on it. :vrysad:
