If you drink red wine you have probably spilled a bit on a rug at some point in time. A red wine stain is one of the most difficult stains to get out. If you do spill red wine you should call a professional carpet cleaning company to clean the stain, because they will have the right solution and tools to properly clean the stain.
You should start to treat the spot immediately though. The longer you leave the stain the more difficult it will be to get the stain out. There are a few things you can do to get started.
Blot – the first thing you should do if you spill red wine is grab a white cloth and begin to blot. Try to blot up as much red wine as you can. You should do this as soon as you can.
Cold Water – after the initial blotting you should poor a bit of cold water on the stain and then blot again. The cold water will dilute the stain making it easier to blot. This may not get the entire stain out though.
Salt – another way to soak up a red wine stain is to pour salt over the stain. The salt will absorb the red wine stain.
