Bet the cleaners loved you. It's a pain in the arse to get Coomassie off things, even with copious amounts of warmed destain.

I have a giant coomassie stain on my lab coat from last wednesday, when my hand slipped off the bottle and half of it slopped down my front.

I'm not in ANY way suggesting that it was Blue WKD.

It's just that it probably was.

we don't have blue WKD in australia.
If I'm going to drink, it is Wine or Sloe gin, thank you very much. Any booze stains are decidedly red in nature.

Hated us.... Mind, this was an old-fashioned bucket biochemistry lab, so the whole place was basically stained blue anyway. It was also 20 years ago and people didn't care so much about safety. Along the corridor, there was a lab where an utter nutter would adjust the flow from a hydrogen cylinder... with a fag in his mouth. It was about then that the department realized it was time to enforce the rules.
