how to remove red wine stain before it sets
- With a white cloth, try and blot as much of the red wine stain as you can. The more you can soak up, the less you’ll have to remove.
- After you finish blotting, pour a bit of cold water directly onto the wine stain. Doing this helps dilute what remains of the stain, making blotting a bit easier. Continue blotting until you find that no more of the stain will come out.
- Now prepare a baking soda paste by mixing a three to one ratio of water to baking soda and applying it to the affected area. Once the paste is dry, vacuum the stain.
- As with most stains, it’s best to blot the stain to remove any wine that hasn’t been absorbed yet. You can use paper towels or a clean cloth.
- In a small bowl, pour two cups of warm water. Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar and one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid.
- Dip a sponge into the bowl and begin applying the solution directly onto the wine stain.
- Continue blotting until the stain has lifted
