Wine Stain Removal In 12 Easy Steps
- Find the Stain
- Identify all parts of the wine stain. It is very important that you make note of the overall area before doing any removal.
- Find White Wine
- White wine will help neutralize red wine and will make it easier to lift the color off of your carpet or clothes
- No White Wine?
- No problem. Any of the following will work: hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, soda ash, vinegar, club soda, salt, or Chem-Dry Stain Extinguisher
- Pour Your Liquid Over the Spill
- Pour whatever neutralizer you choose over the wine stain. Then using a clean towel begin blotting up the liquid
- Dampen a Sponge with COLD Water
- Then blot it on the stain
- Apply Salt
- Shake salt onto the wine stain. This helps deter the wine from setting into your carpet and leaving a nasty stain behind.
- MORE SALT!
- Keep applying salt until it no longer absorbs the wine. After this, cover the stain with another layer of salt.
- Cover with a Layer of Paper Towels
- Place a Heavy Object on the Towel
- Place a heavy object on the towels and allow it to sit over night. Remove the next morning.
- Vacuum the Salt
- After the salt has dried vacuum the area and inspect the stain area.
- The Stain's Still There?
- If the stain is still there repeat the process or call a professional.
- Enjoy Your Newly Cleaned Carpet
