How To Get Red Wine Out Of A Carpet

Holidays are about celebrations and social gatherings, so is wine. Wine is made for entertaining, enhancing and enjoyment, but one simple slip and next thing you know your carpet is soaking up a delectable bouquet of your favorite crimson vino. No need crying over spilled wine (that is unless you really love wine). Follow these simple steps and knock out that red wine stain before it becomes a permanent resident on your home’s carpet.

Note: Before removing any stain on your own make certain your carpet does not have any special cleaning requirements, such is the case with carpets made from natural materials or those containing special dyes. In the event you are unsure don’t hesitate to contact a professional carpet cleaner.

Here is your guide to getting red wine out of a carpet

First, as soon as the wine hits the carpet grab a clean towel and begin to blot the stain. This is stain removal 101. Remove as much of the stain as you can without scrubbing. Scrubbing only grinds a stain into the carpet.

After you have soaked up as much you can there are a couple of handy items you may have just sitting around the home that will help you get rid of that stain. Before you begin application of any stain removal product or household item, test the remedy on a small patch of undamaged carpet.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda: These household items might just be the most multitalented products in your kitchen cupboard. Lightly spray some hydrogen peroxide on the stain and follow-up with a sprinkling of baking soda. Combined, these items help dissolve stains and soak left over particles. Finish up with warm water on a clean towel, more blotting and then vacuum up excess baking soda.
  •  Soda Water : This bubbly concoction is great for cleaning most any stain. The bubbles help breakup the stain and the higher levels of acidity give it deeper stain penetrating power.
  • White Wine: It might seem counterproductive at first, but white wine can actually help break down a red wine stain. Pour white wine over a stain and blot with warm water.
  • Salt: If you don’t have any of these products handy, which every household should, salt has great natural absorbing powers. Once the salt soaks up the stain you can quickly run it over with a vacuum cleaner to make sure everything is lifted from the carpet.

If none of these home remedies work, consider calling Smile Carpet Cleaning  carpet cleaning expert. Using an arsenal of safe and effective stain removal products with the most innovative equipment, Smile Carpet Cleaning can knock tough stains out of carpets, rugs and upholstery for good.
