Red wine stains may seem permanent, but in fact, they can be successfully removed as long as you act quickly, using the right supplies and techniques. The following tips can help you to get rid of red wine stains quickly, once and for all.
- Address the problem immediately. If you are using a commercial stain remover, test it on a hidden area of the stained item to make sure it won’t damage the fabric. Test the solution even if it is homemade.
- Make your own cleaning solution by mixing equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and liquid dish-washing soap. The solution is suggested by cleaners Brompton and should remove the red wine stain successfully in no time.
- Apply the mixture to the stain either by using a spray bottle or pouring it directly on the affected area.
- Use a clean, dry white towel to blot the stain.
- An alternative solution would be a mixture of 1 tablespoon of dish-washing detergent and 2 cups of cool water. Blot the red wine stain with the mixture using a clean cloth.
- If the stain is still visible, try removing it with oxygen bleach. Make sure the stained fabric can handle the bleach treatment. If you are worry about the colour of the affected item, you can use shaving foam instead of bleach. Simply rub the shaving foam into the stain and then blot. Rinse with cool water.
