How to Remove Red Wine Stains


things you'll need:

* Landry detergent, laundry pretreatment or dish soap
* Clean sponge
* Washing machine
* Paper towels
* Hydrogen peroxide
* Towel or washcloth


Blot the stain immediately with paper towels. If it is a dry clean only garment do not pretreat the stain and get it as fast as you can to the cleaners. Pretreatment of the stain can cause irreversible damage and the dry cleaner may not be able to remove the stain.

Combine 1 teaspoon laundry soap or pretreatment (or dish soap, like Dawn) and 1 cup hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Soak a clean sponge in the mixture, squeeze it halfway dry, then gently blot the stain.

Place a dry towel or washcloth between the front and back of the garment if the stain has not penetrated through to the back of the fabric. This will prevent staining on the back of the material.

Review the washing instructions on the label of the fabric. Heed any special care instructions.

Wash in cool water and air dry if the fabric is machine-washable.

Wash gently in the sink with a mild detergent if the fabric is hand-wash only.

The first concoction makes use of 1 cup of water, some soap, and about a half a cup of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide, for those of you that don’t know, is an acid that is typically found in a dark brown bottle at your local pharmacy. The specific brand is irrelevant. You will need to use a liquid soap for this solution. You may substitute dish soap for hand soap. After gathering all the supplies, you want to mix them per instructions and place the solution in a spray bottle. When you have the spray bottle sealed and ready to go you want to spray the solution right atop the stain. Be generous in applying the solution, however, don’t exaggerate. We don’t want to exasperate the problem. After spraying down the troubled area, let the solution sit for several minutes. Afterwards, take a clean white towel and dab the affected area. You should notice the red wine make its way off the piece of furniture or clothing.
