What to do when a full glass of red wine is spilled all over your carpet? This type of spill will be especially noticed if your carpet is white! What do you do immediately after the spill to minimise the stain from the red wine and eventually save your carpet or rugs?Your first response is to take a clean cloth, soak it in cold water and dab it over the spill. Aim to get as much of the excess wine up and out of the carpet. It’s important to do this immediately. Keep dabbing and soaking up as much of the wine as you can until you have the majority of the spill blotted up. Your next step that you can take to help remove the stains is to use various forms of wine stain removal techniques. For starters you can take your favorite carpet shampoo or clothing stain remover, and clean as you would if the wine stain were a bit of dirt on the carpet or clothing. Or you can go for a less conventional, but often times more successful approach and try one of these tried and true wine stains solutions.
Here’s some extra things to try to help remove a wine stain.
When red wine spills onto your carpet, white wine can be your true companion. White wine will help neutralize red wine and will make it easier to lift the color off of your carpet. Simply pour white wine over the stained area and very gently blot the liquid up with a thick towel (be very careful not to rub as this will force the stain into the carpet or clothing fibers). If the stain is still visible, you can add salt and soda to continue lifting out pigment.
