Get the Red Wine Stains Out of Your Fabrics!

Removing Red Wine Stains
Parties are great, but every once in a while somebody has too much fun. Every once in a while you and your carpet must face the dreaded wine stain.

Don’t throw anything away just yet. Removing a wine stain from your carpet or upholstery isn’t impossible. Below are several go-to options to get those pesky wine stains out.

Dawn And Hydrogen Peroxide for clothes

  1. Create a 50/50 mix of hydrogen peroxide and dawn dish detergent. Liberally pour your mixture on to the stain and let it saturate the stain completely.
  2. After letting the stain soak, pop the article of clothing into the washing machine.
  3. You may want to only try this trick on lighter clothes to avoid bleaching.

How to Clean Spilt Wine

Boiling Water for tablecloths

  1. Put a large glass bowl in the sink or somewhere safe outside.
  2. Stretch the fabric with the stained area over the bowl and secure it like saran wrap or a shower cap with a rubber band.
  3. Boil water and slowly pour from a reasonable height over the wine stain. You should see the stain start to wash through and into the bowl below.

White Vinegar and Laundry Detergent for clothes

  1. White vinegar naturally combats purple and red pigments.
  2. Douse the stain in distilled white vinegar.
  3. Once applied, rub with liquid laundry detergent and then wash in hot water in your washing machine.

Bleach White Shirts

  1. When it comes to bright whites, bleach is your best option, as long as the fabric is durable enough to handle it.
  2. Take the item with the stain and soak it in bleach for 8 to 10 min. The wash in hot water.

Using Salt

  1. When you stain your carpet with red wine, time is of the essence.
  2. First, softly blot out as much as possible with paper towels.
  3. Next, cover the stain with salt. Be liberal with it. Make sure the whole stain is covered.
  4. Leave the salt there long enough to absorb the red wine and then dry.
  5. As long as the salt and red wine has completely dried you can then vacuum it up

Conclusion

If all that doesn’t work, there are a few products out there that claim they can. I haven’t tried them as my go-to options tend to work for me… or you could get in touch with a local carpet cleaner every time you drink red wine… or you could just drink white.
