Easy Red Wine Stain Removal Technique
Like most people, you may have had the experience of having a red or rose wine spill on your rug, clothes, or table covers. This is not good because leaving it on the fabric for too long results in a stain that can be hard to remove. Here is an easy red wine stain removal method that works.
First thing you need to do is blot the spot right away (make sure not to press into it) with a napkin, paper towel, or a dry white cloth and try to take out as much of the wine as possible.
If the stain is on your carpet, mix one teaspoon of natural dish soap (Dawn is a good brand to use) with a cup of hydrogen peroxide and pour it over the stained part and leave it to soak for a few minutes. Then watch the red wine fade away. After, you can rinse any residue with water, blot with a dry cloth or paper towel, and put some salt on the spot (salt helps remove moisture). Allow to dry few hours or all night and then vacuum the spot.
Red wine stain removal methods on fabric such as your clothing or tablecloth are a little different. First, run cold water through the back side of the stain. Some people say that pouring white wine over the stain will help remove it. I have never tried this one myself, though, but it seems a bit odd to me that a solution to red wine stain removal would be to add more wine. Of course, you can try it, then let me know if it works.
Still, if running water through the opposite end of the stain does not help remove it, then do the following: Combine 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide, and a little bit of dish soap in a spray bottle and apply the solution on the area. It is better that you wash your clothes immediately, so that the peroxide doesn’t have time to settle and bleach your clothing.
You can use this method of red wine stain removal on coffee and tea stains as well.
