dye stain from napkin

I'm sure this has happen to most everyone who has more than one table colth and napkins. Since the pretty white cloth are used only a few times a year, I often store them in a buffet. This last time I placed RED cloth napkins on top of the table cloth. I was not thinking! But now getting ready for some up coming events I pull out the tablecloth and the Red napkin has left a red dye transfer on to the white table cloth. Happens a lot in areas like South Carolina where humidity is high.
So I do not know how to get this dye spot out. The table cloth is a poly-blend and I have not tried anything yet for fear I would set the stain. Help, please
