Today’s blog entry focuses on removing red wine stains from your carpet.

Unfortunately, we can’t change the fact that your lovely wine has been wasted, but we can at least salvage your carpet. Here’s what you can do.

 Blot The Spot Immediately 

When red wine spills on the carpet, the worst mistake is to leave it unattended. However, rubbing the stain isn’t the right way to handle it either. Instead, use paper towels or a dry tea towel to gently dab and blot the stain. This approach helps to absorb the liquid without pushing it deeper into the carpet fibers. Rubbing can damage the fibers and make the stain harder to remove.

 Soak Up The Area Salts 

If you have a sodium bicarbonate solution available, it’s an ideal option. However, if you don’t, table salt can serve as an effective alternative. Since both of these substances absorb moisture, it’s important to use them promptly (right after blotting) for optimal results. If the stain has dried, you can start by adding a small amount of water.

Dab The Wine 

Create a mixture by combining dish soap, white vinegar, and warm water. Soak a clean tea towel in the solution, then use it to gently dab the stained area. This should help loosen the stain, allowing you to blot it away with a different, dry tea towel.

White Wine A Solution?

Although it’s not our first recommendation, employing white wine can help dilute and loosen the stain if you lack other available alternatives, making it easier to blot away. Allow it to sit for a few seconds before dabbing with a clean tea towel. You might need to perform this procedure more than once, but it’s crucial to address the stain while it’s still fresh.

Call The Professionals

Before attempting to remove any stain yourself, it’s crucial to identify the type of carpet you have (whether it’s wool, synthetic, etc.) since this significantly influences the method of stain removal and how difficult the stain will be to eliminate. While it may be tempting to handle the stain on your own, it’s always advisable to contact a professional carpet cleaner so you don’t cause any more harm!

Should luck be on your side, these steps should assist in removing the red wine stain from the carpet fibers. Unfortunately, not every stain can be eliminated with this method.
