Here's a trick that I learned having to get red Jell-O off of upholstery and carpet. It has been a long time since I've had to do this so I cannot remember the brand of carpet cleaning solution that I used but I honestly don't think it matters.
I know the pants aren't carpet - but this trick may work. I also know how bizzare this sounds but this trick actually was taught to me when I called the toll free # on the back of the carpet cleaning bottle.
1) Saturate the stain with cleaning solution & let it set for about 10 minutes.
2) Take an white dishtowel (one that you won't mind getting stains on - but it must be white & clean) and dampen it with cold water - not soaking but a good damp.
3) Plug in your clothes iron & turn it on the highest setting - wait for it to get hot.
4) Place the damp towel onto the area where the stain is.
5) Put the hot iron on the damp towel & let it steam for a minute. This actually will transfer the stain to the towel.
This may take more than one application - but I can tell you it DID work for both the sofa upholstery & carpet.
If this doesn't get it all out - try Oxy Clean in the wash. That seems to do wonders for a lot of stains.
I haven't had any problems getting red jello out of clothes with Shout pretreatment. As a matter of fact, I just washed a t-shirt with jello on it. My son got it on my shirt a few days ago and I am just now getting around to washing it. (we had just done the laundry right before it happened). It came out fine.
