How to Remove a Wine Stain

Isn’t it fantastic to just sit back and enjoy a good glass of wine? However, we have all encountered that situation where we have accidentally spilled a little onto our upholstery, or perhaps, far worse a whole bottle. Congratulations, you now have a wine stain! This is something that you are going to want to deal with sooner or later, so how can we remove it?

With most white wine stains you can remove them with nothing more than a bit of water, and if that doesn’t work a bit of soap. However, red wine stains are a whole different ball game. We are going to need a few materials first:

White Wine
Baking Soda, if you don’t have this then you can use talcum powder or club soda.

Wine stain

Firstly, you are going to want to blot the stain with a bit of tissue paper. Do not rub, this is going to make the problem much worse.

Once you have done that, dab the wine stain with your white wine. Again, don’t scrub. Once you have done this, take up the excess moisture with a clean cloth. Most of the time this should be more than enough to completely eradicate the stain. If it doesn’t work, then spread your baking soda over the top. Leave it in place for fifteen to twenty minutes and remove it. This should be more than enough. If this still doesn’t eliminate the wine stain, look into other options such as professional cleaner, or simply an upholstery cleaner you can use at home.
