How To Clean Wine From Carpet

Picture this: You're hosting an incredible wine tasting party with friends, music, and, of course, amazing wine. Everyone's having a great time when - oops! - someone accidentally knocks over a glass of red wine onto your pristine carpet. Don't panic! At Black Wine Club, we've got your back. We've put together a step-by-step guide on how to clean wine from carpet like a pro, so your good vibes won't be ruined by an innocent spill. Read on to make sure you're prepared for any wine mishaps at your next gathering.

Act Fast: The First Thing To Do When Wine Hits The Carpet

When it comes to wine stains, time is of the essence. As soon as you notice the spill, take these steps to minimize the damage:

  1. Blot, don't rub: Grab a clean, dry cloth and gently blot the wine spill, working from the outside in. This prevents the stain from spreading and helps absorb as much liquid as possible.
  2. Avoid heat: Heat can set wine stains, making them harder to remove. Keep the stained area cool with cold water or ice until you can properly treat it.

    • White vinegar or lemon juice
    • Dish soap
    • Cold water
    • Baking soda or salt
    • A clean, dry cloth
    • A vacuum or soft-bristled brush

    Step 1: Mix The Cleaning Solution

    In a small bowl, mix equal parts white vinegar (or lemon juice) and cold water. Add a few drops of dish soap and stir well.

    Step 2: Apply The Solution

    Using a clean cloth, gently dab the solution onto the stained area. Start at the edges and work your way toward the center of the stain. Be careful not to over-saturate the carpet, as this can cause the stain to spread deeper into the fibers.

    Step 3: Rinse And Blot

    Fill a separate bowl with cold water. Using another clean cloth, rinse the vinegar solution out of the carpet by dabbing it with cold water. Blot the area with a dry cloth to remove excess moisture.

    Step 4: Apply Baking Soda Or Salt

    Generously sprinkle baking soda or salt over the stained area to help remove any lingering wine residue. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes (or longer for stubborn stains) before vacuuming or brushing away the powder.

    Step 5: Repeat If Necessary

    If the stain persists, repeat steps 2 through 4 until the carpet is clean.
