We at Pristine Home are here to give you quick tips to help you with day to day and once off cleaning issues. Today we look at red wine stains.
Blot: Use a clean white cloth to blot up as much of the red wine stain as you can. You’ll need to alternate the cloth you are using so as not to reapply stain to clean parts of the carpet.
Add a little water: Pour a small amount of water onto the red wine stain and continue blotting. The water will help to dilute the red wine letting you blot up the stain more easily. Be sure not to pour too much water at a time. Continue until no more stain can be removed.
Make a baking soda paste: Use a 3-1 ratio of baking soda/water paste on the red wine stain. Put the paste directly on the stain and allow it to dry before vacuuming up the paste. In most cases this will remove the majority of the stain.
Tips:If the stain remains, apply a carpet stain remover according to the manufacturer’s instructions. *Be sure to test any carpet stain removal techniques on a hidden area of your carpet to make sure of the results.*
