Tricks to Remove Red Wine Stains

If you love red wine, you should read this in case of wine stains.

Red wine stains are not as difficult to remove as you might think, just act quickly. We have listed some good removal tricks:

The Soda Trick

You are sitting at a restaurant and enyojing your meal and you or perhaps your date spill’s wine at you. You should flush the affected area with soda water or sparkling water as soon as possible – the bubbles in the water will help push the stain out of the fabric.

The Salt Trick

As soon as you stain your carpet with red wine, blot as much of it as you can with a paper towel, and then cover the entire stain with salt until you can’t see the red wine stain anymore. Let the salt soak into the wet stain and then dry. As the salt dries, it should suck up the stain. Well don´t forget to vacuum the salt later. 😉

A Mixture of Dawn And Hydrogen Peroxide

If you are at home and you get red wine stains on clothes then you can mix together equal parts Dawn dishwashing detergent and hydrogen peroxide. Pour the mixture over the wine stain and allow it to soak in. You should see the stain begin to fade almost immediately. After you have allowed the mixture to soak into the stain, launder the clothing normally. Notice that this works best on light colored clothes, as hydrogen peroxide has a tendency to bleach.

Boiling Water

Boil water in a tea kettle. While you’re boiling the water, find a large glass bowl and place it in the sink. Then stretch the portion of the fabric that has the stain on it over bowl and secure it with a rubber band. The fabric should be taut. When the water boils, pour it from a height over a foot above the stain directly on to the fabric. The stain should wash out.

White Vinegar and Laundry Detergent

Cover the stain in white vinegar, which neutralizes purple and red pigments. Immediately after applying the vinegar, rub in liquid detergent, then launder in hot water. The stain should lift.

Bleach trick

Well we don’t recommended using bleach for all wine stain occurrences. Bleach works best for getting wine out of white fabrics. Soak the fabric in bleach for about ten minutes and then launder in hot water. The stain will disappear.

If you spill a lot then you might consider white wine instead. 😉
