How To Get Out A Red Wine Stain

Picture this: you're at a fabulous wine tasting event hosted by Black Wine Club, swaying to the fantastic live electronic music and enjoying the company of fellow artsy, creative souls. As you mingle, you accidentally spill some red wine on your pristine white shirt. Panic sets in, but don't worry! We've got you covered with a foolproof guide on how to get out red wine stains and save your outfit.

Act Fast!

The first step to successfully removing a red wine stain is to act as quickly as possible. The longer the stain sits, the harder it will be to remove. So, as soon as you notice the spill, follow the steps below to increase your chances of success.

Step 1: Blot the Excess Wine

Using a clean white cloth or paper towel, gently blot the stain to remove excess wine. Work from the outer edges towards the center to avoid spreading the stain, and remember not to rub – this will only push the stain further into the fabric.

    Step 2: Apply a Stain Treatment

    There are several stain treatment options you can use, depending on the materials you have on hand.

    Cold Water and Salt

    1. Gently pour cold water over the stain.
    2. Generously sprinkle table salt over the wet area and let it sit for about 15-30 minutes. The salt should absorb the wine.
    3. Once the salt has done its magic, gently rinse the area with cold water and dab dry with a clean towel.

    White Wine/Clear Carbonated Beverages

    In a pinch, you can use white wine or clear carbonated beverages to help neutralize red wine stains.

    1. Pour the white wine or clear carbonated beverage over the stain.
    2. Blot the area gently with a clean towel.

    Commercial Wine Stain Removers

    There are several commercial red wine stain removers on the market that are effective and easy to use.

    1. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for applying the product.
    2. Blot the area gently with a clean towel after applying the remover.

    Step 3: Launder the Garment

    Once the stain has been treated, launder the garment as usual according to the instructions on the care label. For best results, avoid using heat during washing – stick to cold water and air drying.

    How To Get Out A Red Wine Stain Example:

    Imagine wearing a delicate, white silk blouse to a Black Wine Club event. As you raise a glass of Pinot Noir to your lips, someone bumps into you, causing a dreaded red stain to form on your blouse.

    You swiftly reach for a clean, white napkin, and gently blot the excess wine, working from the outer edges of the stain towards the center. Grabbing a glass of white wine from the bar, you gently pour it over the red wine stain and continue to blot the area. You then excuse yourself to the restroom, where you rinse the affected area with cold water and dab it dry with a clean towel.

    Upon returning home, you follow the care label's instructions to hand-wash the blouse in cold water. After air drying, the blouse looks as good as new, and you're ready to rock it at the next Black Wine Club event.

    Now that you're armed with the know-how to tackle red wine stains like a pro, you can fully relax and enjoy the incredible wine tastings and live electronic music events hosted by Black Wine Club.
