How do you clean up red wine stains on the carpet? If you spill red wine on your carpet, you need to act quickly. The longer a stain sits, the more difficult it is to remove. Some people are worried when they spill red wine on their carpets, but they shouldn't be. Red wine is actually much easier to clean than many other types of spills. Red wine can be removed from a carpet with a few simple steps and without too much effort.
How to remove red wine stains from carpet
There are a few things you can try to get the stain out of your carpet. Below are some tips for removing red wine from carpets:
White Vinegar & Baking Soda
The first step is to blot the spill with a clean white cloth or towel, then use paper towels to absorb the liquid as much as possible. This will soak up some of the wine and help it dry faster.
Next, mix one-part water and one part white vinegar in a bowl or bucket and pour it onto the stain. Use a scrub brush or sponge to work into the carpet fibres and then rinse the area thoroughly with water using your hands or a wet/dry vacuum cleaner. The last thing you need to do is sprinkle baking soda over the area and let it sit for a few minutes in order to remove any residual odours
Dish Soap & Hydrogen Peroxide
Blot the stain with a clean, dry cloth. Add two parts hydrogen peroxide to one part dish soap. Apply the solution to the stain and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Blot again with a clean, dry cloth and apply to stain until it disappears.
