Jump to Section

If you've ever spilled red wine on your clothes, you know how difficult it can be to remove the stain. Red wine is a particularly tricky color to get out of fabric, but with a little bit of effort, it can be done. The key is to act quickly and use the right methods. In this article, we'll discuss the best ways to remove red wine stains from clothes and furniture. Let's get started. 

Blotting To Remove Red Wine Stains

If you're dealing with a fresh red wine stain, the first thing you need to do is blot it with a clean cloth. Don't rub the stain, as this will only spread it further. Once you've blotted the area, apply a bit of white wine to the stain. 

This will help to neutralize the color. Rinse the area with cold water and then apply a detergent solution. Let it sit for a few minutes before washing the area with hot water and a little bit of bleach. With these tips, you should be able to remove even the most stubborn red wine stains. 

Additional Tips When Removing Red Wine Stains

  • If the stain is particularly stubborn, you may need to repeat the steps above a few times.
  • You can also try using a vinegar solution to remove red wine stains. Simply mix equal parts vinegar and water and apply it to the stain. Let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing away. This also applies when removing lipstick stains or removing foundation stains from clothing as well.
  • For furniture, you may need to call in a professional if the stain is particularly difficult to remove. They will have special cleaners that can help to get the job done.

With these tips, you should be able to remove even the most stubborn red wine stains.

What Happens If You Get Red Wine On Your Carpet And Fabrics?

From time to time, accidents happen. If you've ever spilled red wine on your clothing or carpet, you know how difficult it can be to remove the stain. Depending on the fabric, the wine can set in and become a permanent reminder of that one time you got a little too carried away at the party. If you've spilled red wine on your clothing, the first thing you'll want to do is act fast. 

The longer the wine sits on the fabric, the harder it will be to remove. So, start by blotting up as much of the wine as you can with a clean, white cloth. 

Once you've removed as much wine as possible, it's time to start working on the stain itself. If the clothing is machine-washable, you'll want to pre-treat the stain with a laundry stain remover before putting it in the wash. If the clothing is dry-cleaned only, you'll need to take it to a professional. Be careful to not put too much remover on your clothes as water might end up setting the stain.

Once you've done that, you'll need to create a mixture of one part white vinegar and two parts water. Pour this mixture onto the stain and blot with a clean cloth until the stain is gone. If the stain is particularly stubborn, you can try using a carpet cleaner or upholstery cleaner. Removing kool-aid stains from your carpet can also be done with vinegar as it has acidic properties. Simply blot the stain with a white cloth, and then use a mixture of one part vinegar and two parts water to remove the rest of it. For more tips on how to clean your carpets, check out this guide.
