It’s no secret that accidents come along with holiday parties. Whether it is a juice spill by a child or a grown man spilling his wife’s wine, the question always comes up “what is the best way for me to remove this stain?”, especially when a professional cleaning service in Bucks County won’t be able to get there right away. I have compiled through extensive research some sure shot ways to get red wine out of carpets this holiday season.
When dealing with carpet colors like light beige or white start by blotting the wine stain with a clean cloth or paper towel quickly to absorb as much liquid as possible. Then try diluting one tablespoon of ammonia in one cup of warm water. Get the stain wet with the ammonia and water solution, allowing it to sit for about five to ten minutes. After that use a clean cloth to again blot the stain, hopefully by this time the red wine will be gone.
Another home remedy that can help is table salt; sprinkle the salt onto the stain while the stain is still wet. As the liquid is absorbed, the crystals will begin to turn red or pink in color. Leave the salt on overnight or a minimum of six hours and then vacuum. In most cases, this red wine stain removal technique will work very well. Finally, moisten the wine stain again generously with club soda, blot the stained area and then sprinkle with salt, when the area is dry pull out the vacuum and clean up the rest of the salt.
