How to Remove Red Wine Stains From Your Carpet

how to remove red wine spills on carpet

Oh no! A red wine spill on the carpet? Don’t worry — there is a way to get it out, especially if you act fast. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A few clean white towels
  • Baking soda
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Spoon (metal or plastic)
  • Cold water
  • Liquid dishwashing soap
  • Hydrogen peroxide

Ok, now that you have your materials, let’s get to removing the stain:

  1. Blot the spill with a clean white towel as soon as you can. When you blot the spill, you minimize the amount of acids and dyes from the wine that will work their way into the carpet fibers.

  2. Generously sprinkle baking soda onto the spill.

  3. Mix the baking soda around the stained area with the back of the spoon. As the baking soda absorbs the wine, it will turn red and clump.

  4. Vacuum the clumped baking soda. Repeat the baking soda steps 2-4 until the baking soda no longer absorbs the wine.

  5. Spray the area with a solution of 0.5-1.0 tsp of liquid dishwashing soap and 2 cups of cold water.

  6. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes, agitating the area with the back of the spoon.

  7. Blot with a clean white towel. The towel will show how much wine is being absorbed. Repeat steps 5-7 until the towel is no longer absorbing any wine.

  8. Flush and rinse the area with clean cold water and blot with a clean towel. Dry the area as much as possible.

  9. Spray with hydrogen peroxide and let it dry.

These steps should help you remove your red wine stain! If you’re still having trouble, please call 888-982-3553. The experts at Stanley Steemer of South Florida are happy to help you!
