Top Five Ways To Remove Red Wine From Carpet

Top Five Ways to Remove Red Wine From Carpets

Have no fear – help is here! Here are our Top Five no-stress methods for removing red wine from your carpets:

 

1​The Dishwashing Soap and Hydrogen Peroxide Method

Be careful when using this method to clean up your spill. Hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent so you want to be sure that it doesn’t leave your carpet discolored. If possible, create this mixture and test it on a hidden part of carpeting to see how it reacts. After you’ve blotted the spill with a clean cloth and soaked up the wine, mix two parts hydrogen peroxide to one part dishwashing soap and apply it to the spill. Then take a sponge and dab at the spill until the stain is removed and the area is dry.

 

2​The Dishwashing Soap and White Vinegar Method

First, blot the spill with a clean cloth. Next, mix one part white vinegar to two parts water and saturate the spill with this mixture. Then blot the area with a clean towel. Mix one-quarter teaspoon of liquid dish-washing detergent with four cups of lukewarm water and pour a small amount of the solution on the stained carpet. Work the solution into the stain by using a gentle blotting motion. Then use water and a clean cloth to blot the spill and it should remove the rest of the stain. If there is still some stain left on the carpet, refer to the soap and hydrogen peroxide method to clean up the rest.

 

3​The Club Soda Method

After you’ve blotted out as much of the wine as possible with a clean cloth, pour club soda over the spill and continue to blot and pull out most of the stain. Club soda works well because the carbonation and sodium components act as a good way to lift the stain from the carpet fibers. Then take four cups of lukewarm water and dilute it with one-quarter dishwashing soap and apply it to the remaining stain. Then blot until the stain is completely removed and finish with water as outline in the white vinegar method above.

 

4​The White Wine Method

Sometimes the best way to treat an alcohol problem is with more alcohol. All joking aside, pour some white wine over the red wine spill. White wine helps to neutralize the spill and prevent it from spreading further. Then you’ll want to blot at the stain until it is removed. If you don’t have any white wine available, try using vodka as a substitute and it should do the job.

Ideally, if you know that you’ll be drinking red wine occasionally, it’s best to purchase a product that’s tested and proven to remove a red wine stain. If you happen to have a really bad spill and don’t want to risk ruining your carpet, you can also hire trusted cleaning professionals to take care of it. Just remember, whenever there’s a red wine spill, there’s always a solution to get it cleaned up (no pun intended).

I've used other local franchise companies in the past and the attention to detail was always lacking. BCS's attention to detail is consistently good, they show up when they say and their service is much more personal than the larger franchises. Happy with their job everytime.
