Red Wine Stain | CitiClean BlogNo matter how careful we try to be, a red wine stain is an unavoidable lifetime experience. Don’t let a little red wine ruin a perfectly good outfit, removing a red wine stain isn’t as impossible as it sounds.

The moment the wine hits the fabric you’ll need to act quickly to prevent the stain from spreading and setting. Start by sprinkling a good amount of table salt onto the wine. The salt soaks up much of the wine and prevents the liquid from spreading into the fabric. When you’re ready to treat the stain just rinse the salt off with water.

One simple and common remedy for removing red wine stains is to make a mixture of equal parts hydrogen peroxide and liquid detergent. Place a towel under the stained fabric to prevent the stain from spreading, and spray, sponge, or pour the soap and peroxide mixture on the stain. After allowing the area to presoak for a minute or so, gently blot the stain with a clean, white towel. Continue blotting the area (gently) until the stain is gone, then launder normally. Make sure to test a small area of the fabric before treating the stain with peroxide.

Another alternative to hydrogen peroxide is white vinegar. Mix one tablespoon of dish soap or liquid laundry detergent with one tablespoon white vinegar and two cups of lukewarm water. Go through the same process of wetting, soaking and blotting, and watch that stain vanish.

Remember, when treating red wine stains, time is of the essence. If you act quickly, you can remove red wine stains completely.
