The Secret to Removing Red Wine Stains
A Facebook dilemma post showed up on our Facebook newsfeed:
“Just spilled an entire glass of red wine on my living room carpet! ... HELP! any suggestions on how to keep it from staining?!”
Curious to hear what some of the replies were?
“Salt” “Resolve” “Rug” (we like this one!) “Oxiclean” “White vinegar”
Luckily, we were able to respond and our friend successfully saved her carpets from a terrible, red stain settling into the carpet fibers.
Here is an insider tip for safely for removing red wine stains on your carpet:
1. Place a damp towel or rag over the stained area
2. Then, place a hot steam iron on top of the towel covering the stain for 20-30 seconds.
3. Lift the iron and the towel. (You should see the stain transfer from the carpet to the towel.)
