Different ways to get rid of red wine stains on a carpet

Oct 8th 2015 at 10:08 PM

If you happen to have a small party of sorts and manage to stain your carpet with some red wine, it is easy to throw your hands up in the air and give up even before you try and get rid of the stain. However, I am here to tell you that all hope is not lost and that by taking some immediate action and by using some readily found home ingredients you can get rid of the stain or at least reduce the ugly looking effects from your carpet. That way, you may have a better chance of getting rid of the stain through more professional techniques as soon as you have the chance. Below are two of the simple but effective techniques that you can use.

Whether you get advice from a professional rug cleaning, Orange County professional or the recommendations of a seasoned homeowner, you will be told that the first step to get rid of any kind of stain from your carpet is to deal with it immediately before the stain dries and sets into the fabric of the carpet. Therefore, immediately you stain your carpet with red wine, start by trying to absorb away as much of the red stain as you can by blotting it away. The best way is to get the most absorbent material that you can find, usually tissue paper will do the trick. Then, start absorbing the wine from the edges and quickly work your way towards the centre of the stain. Doing this will ensure that the stain does not spread any further and that you are able to contain the stain and prevent more damage. As you dab at the stain, ensure that you also dab in an up and down motion and not in a side by side motion. Again, doing it this way will ensure that the stain doesn’t unnecessarily spread and cause more damage than is necessary.

After you get rid of most of the red wine, the next step is to pour some cold water carefully over the remaining red mark on the carpet and then to continue dabbing at the stain. Doing this will help to dilute the red wine on the carpet and therefore reduce the effects of the stain on the carpet. If you do this with some skill and expediency you can get rid of most of the stain, but if you are not able to, read on for the next tip to get rid of the stain. Carpet cleaning, Orange County professionals will also tell you that another way to get rid of a red wine stain is to use white wine in order to reduce the effects of the red wine stain. The technique is to immediately pour some white wine over the red wine and use the dabbing technique described above in order to get rid of the stain. White wine and vodka can actually come in quite handy if you don’t have water close by to get rid of the stain.
