Apply cold water to the stain immediately. Cold water will prevent the stain from setting into the fabric permanently. Jello has protein in it and if hot water is used, it will cook the protein and cause the stain to set in.
Mix together a small amount of ammonia and cold water. Dab the ammonia solution onto the red Jello stain with a paper towel. Gently rub the ammonia solution into the stain.
If the stain seems like it is not coming out, sprinkle a little bit of salt on the stain and rub it in. Dab some more of the ammonia mixture on to the stain and rub it in.
Repeat steps 1 through 3 until the stain is gone. Make sure you do not to wash the garment until the stain is gone, otherwise the stain will set in the fabric. After the stain is gone, wash the garment as you normally would in cold water.
