Remove wine stains from furniture

by Jessie

Red wine is very difficult stain to get out of clothing.  The key is to work as quickly as possible.

If you have red wine staining your carpeting or fabrics, follow this step by step process right away.

Shake a thick layer of salt on top of the stain to prevent it from spreading and setting.
For a lighter colored rug, first apply hydrogen peroxide, giving a few minutes to penetrate carpet.  Then spray bottle filled with one part water and one part carpet cleaner, mist the stain.  Blot with a clean cloth until stain is removed.
If you have white wine available, simply pour a small amount of white wine over the red wine stain and blot with a clean, absorbent towel. Always blotted as much of the stain as possible.  Never rub or wipe at red wine stained because this will only set the stain deeper in the fabric.

Do you have playlist for cleaning?  We’ve found cleaning to music helps the time go by quickly and puts us in a better mood – especially when tackling the entire house two days before your in-laws arrive.
We put together some of our favorite songs and albums to play while cleaning.  Variety is, after all, the spice of life.

Let us know what you clean by in our comments sections below.
