Red Wine Stains after Mother’s Day?
That’s unfortunate. But when the family gets together, its supposed to be fun! Don’t be stressed about trying to get that stain out.. There are plenty of DIY ways to get that red wine out. Here’s an example:
With a white cloth, try and blot as much of the red wine stain as you can. The more you soak up, the less you’ll have to remove.
After you finish blotting, pour a bit of cold water directly onto the wine stain. During this helps dilute what remains of the stain, making blotting a bit easier. Continue blotting until you find that no more of the stain will come out.
Now prepare a baking soda paste by mixing a three to one ratio of water to baking soda and applying it to the affected area. Once the paste is dry, vacuum the stain.
Why won’t this DIY solution work?
Well, it might for your top stain, but it doesn’t extract what is in the pad below the carpet. The carpet might be looking great, but the next wetness that hits this carpet, wine will return. Red is the hardest stain to get out. The pink remains for years!
Secondly, the baking soda paste could bleach your carpet. Ever notice how sometimes you clean up a stain and that spot is lighter than the other carpet around? That’s what some cleaners can do to carpet. It is important to only use natural or professional grade cleaners to get the stain out.
