Wine Stain Removal In 12 Easy Steps

  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Dampen a Sponge with COLD Water
    • Then blot it on the stain
  6. Apply Salt
    • Shake salt onto the wine stain. This helps deter the wine from setting into your carpet and leaving a nasty stain behind.
  7. MORE SALT!
    • Keep applying salt until it no longer absorbs the wine. After this, cover the stain with another layer of salt.
  8. Cover with a Layer of Paper Towels
  9. 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.
  10. Vacuum the Salt
    • After the salt has dried vacuum the area and inspect the stain area.
  11. The Stain's Still There?
    • If the stain is still there repeat the process or call a professional.
