Oh, the pleasure and pain of red wine! We love the way it tastes but hate dealing with the stains that come from inevitable spills. Why is it that our favourite white shirt, new cream carpet or light-coloured lounge seems to be the exact things that attract the most amount of wine stain ‘carnage’?
It’s actually the tannins in red wine which makes red wine stains notoriously difficult to remove. So whenever you are removing red wine stains from your carpet, clothes or upholstery the most important thing to remember is to act as fast as you can before it sets. Here is a quick how-to guide to help:
Removing Red Wine from clothing
It’s always so frustrating discover you've got red wine stains over your favourite fashion items (And why does the universe always insist on it being when you’re wearing you favourite white clothes?!) But it doesn’t have to mean ‘goodbye’ if you start the stain removal process as soon as you notice the stains and follow these steps:
Removing Red Wine from Carpets
All the fun doesn’t have to end in tears just because you've spilt your red wine on your carpet and now there’s a big angry red stain right where you were partying on down one moment before!
Start by first removing as much of the liquid as quickly as you can by blotting with either a clean white (or light coloured) cloth or paper towel from the outside of the stain toward the centre so you don’t spread the stain.
Removing Red Wine from Upholstery
Light coloured furniture and red wine is never a match made in heaven. But they can at least be good friends, if you move fast and tackle any red wine spills as quickly as possible, following this simple guide:
Firstly, ask yourself if your covers are removable or machine washable covers? If they are, start by taking off the cover and head to your laundry. If not, it’s ok you’re just going to work directly on the couch (without removing the cover) to get rid of the red wine stain. Again, speed is the key!
Finally, and just a thought, but if you’re someone that's kind of prone to red wine clumsiness, maybe it's time to ask yourself whether white wine might need to be your preferred wine variety? 😊 Cheers xx
