Red Wine - Tips from Our Stain Removal Experts in Sewell, NJ
Many people enjoy a glass of red wine now and again, but no one enjoys seeing that same glass spilled on their carpet. But it happens though, and if you find yourself staring at an unsightly crimson splotch on your rug; our stain removal experts in Sewell, NJ, at Paradise Clean & Green have some advice for you.
Your first step whenever someone spills their vino is to blot it as well as you can with a clean, dry cloth. Then, depending on the solutions you have on hand, you can get the red out.
Club soda is the go-to stain removal choice for wine spills. After the initial blotting, pour the soda on the stain, blot it again, and keep repeating the process until the mess is gone.
If you don’t have club soda handy, we suggest you can get by with a solution of one tablespoon of liquid dishwashing soap combined with a tablespoon of white vinegar and two cups of warm water. Use a white cloth (to prevent dye bleeding into your carpet) then proceed as you would with club soda.
Our stain removal experts also say you can use hydrogen peroxide mixed with dishwashing soap. First, test it on an out-of-sight area to make sure it doesn’t remove the carpet’s color. These eco-friendly methods work and are good to use for emergency cleanups.
