Fear not, my fellow wine-lovers, for we are here to guide you through the process of getting red wine out of clothing.

The Wine Rescue Kit - What You'll Need

The key to removing red wine stains from your clothing is to act fast. Here's what you'll need to have on hand to treat the stain immediately:

  • Paper towels or a clean cloth
  • Cold water
  • Salt
  • Boiling water, if you're at home
  • Laundry detergent or stain remover

Step By Step: How To Get Red Wine Out Of Clothing

1. Blot, Don't Rub

As soon as the spill happens, use a paper towel or clean cloth to gently blot the stain. This will help get rid of the excess wine and soak up as much of it as possible before it sets. Remember - blot, not rub, as rubbing will only make the stain worse.

    2. Rinse with Cold Water

    Rinse the stained area with cold water ASAP. Don't use hot or warm water, as it can set the stain.

    3. Sprinkle with Salt

    Generously sprinkle the stained area with salt. The salt will work to absorb the remaining wine, pulling it out of the fabric fibers. Let it sit for at least five minutes or more, depending on the size and severity of the stain.

    4. Pour Boiling Water (if at home)

    If you're not out and about, and instead enjoying your wine at home, you can now take a crucial extra step. Carefully pour boiling water over the salt-covered stain from a height of about 12 inches. This flow of hot water will help dissolve the salt and wash away the red wine.

    5. Wash As Usual

    Treat the stained area with your favorite laundry detergent or stain remover, and wash the garment as per the washing instructions on the label.

    3. Find some salt, and sprinkle it generously over the stained area. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.

    4. Once you're home, get some boiling water, and carefully pour it over the salt-covered stain.

    5. Apply your preferred stain remover or laundry detergent, and wash according to the care label instructions.
