What are ya going to do?

Its a process but there are bleaching agents to remove the stain, plenty of "how to"
methods online..
If its worth your time..?

After bleaching, if there's still a shadow or tint left from the previous application this darker tint might set the tone for that mustard application and wouldn't be a disaster.

Ohh, that sounds very nice. I'm in no way traditional at all, but this does peak my interest.
