Anyone who has light-colored carpets will discover that the enemy of carpet owners everywhere is red wine.
Fortunately, no matter the color, the big wine stain does not have to mean the end of your carpet. People successfully extract wine stains from the carpet every day, and no one else ever knows there was a stain in that spot. Here you can find a few tips on how to remove red wine from the carpet if you’ve had a spill before you call your local Prescott professional carpet cleaner such as Clean N Bright to get rid of the stain altogether.
DIY Red Wine Removal Before Carpet Cleaner Finishes the Job
- As soon as you can, blot the stain to absorb as much wine as possible. To soak up the wine without increasing the size of the stain, use a white absorbent towel.
- Pour a little cold water on the stained area after blotting up as much wine as possible. This waters down the stain and making more of the wine easier to absorb into your towel. Make sure to use cold water and not as hot as this hot water can set the stain. Little by little, apply more cold water until you’ve got as much of the color from the stain as you can on your own.
- Mix a 3 to 1 ratio of water and baking soda into a paste. Apply this to the stain of the wine and wait until it dries. It would help if you vacuumed it up until it is fully dry and take much of the stain with it.
- After these DIY techniques, there may be a hint of a stain leftover. In that case, to clean the area thoroughly, use commercial red wine stain removers or other carpet cleaners.
