The Essential Steps to Cleaning Wine Stains on Carpets

The Essential Steps to Cleaning Wine Stains on Carpets

Step 1: Act Fast

Time is of the essence when treating spilled wine. The quicker you get to it, the easier it will be to remove the stain. Thus, don't procrastinate or wait until the end of the party to tackle the mess.

Step 2: Blot, Don't Rub

Use a clean, white cloth or paper towel and gently blot the spilled wine. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing as this will only push the stain deeper into the carpet fibers. Work from the outside of the spill towards the center to avoid spreading it further.

    Step 3: Keep the Stain Wet

    In the panic to clean the mess, you might be tempted to use hot water. Avoid it as this may set the stain. Instead, dampen the stain with cold water or white wine. The idea is to dilute the wine, making it less concentrated, and easier to remove.

    Step 4: Apply a Stain Remover

    There are many household items you can use for removing wine stains on carpets. Here's a list of DIY cleaners, use any of these to combat the stubborn stain:

    • Baking soda, mixed into a paste with water
    • White vinegar, diluted with water
    • Club soda, its carbonation will help lift the stain
    • Salt, sprinkle generously to absorb the wine
    • Dish soap, use with or without hydrogen peroxide

    Apply any of the above solutions to the stain and let them work their magic before blotting again.

    Step 5: Rinse and Dry

    Once the stain has faded significantly, gently rinse the area with cold water using a white, lint-free cloth or sponge. Remove excess water by blotting the carpet with a clean towel or paper towel. Avoid drenching the carpet. Finally, let it air dry or use a fan to help speed up the process.
