Cleaning foliage stains from discs?

I lost a white Pro Valk during field practice during the summer and I just found it yesterday after the weeds/poison ivy it was hiding in have receded. Apparently it was upside down and half under some leaves so I have these splotchy reddish-orange stains on it, I guess from leaves decomposing. Anybody ever tried cleaning a "natural dye" before? Just curious.

Nah. Discs get marked up all the time. Now that Valk has an interesting story to tell.

I've tried without much luck. Then lost the disc again due to the natural camouflage of the pattern the leaves left

Soak it in Warm/soapy water (use good dish soap) after its been soaking moderately scrub it with a sponge. It works for me and I get 90% of all marks and stains off my discs.

Maybe Magic Eraser or Oxiclean.

I found a sweet looking old PFN Tbird in white that sat for ages and probably looks the same. I didn't even wash it too hard because I didn't want to do any damage to the stamp. Figured I'd leave it as is, but when I found it at first I was interested in figuring out the same thing..
