It's a chemical reaction. I did this too and found plain water washing it out a lot seemed to fade it. Then gave it a good scrub with astonish paste. It faded to virtually nothing but I did wash, wash, wash almost as soon as the reaction occured. Good luck!

I did this to my bath, hydrogen peroxide worked wonders. Stain can no longer be seen
