Tips on how to clean red wine stains out of your rug

Having your family over for the holidays is always enjoyable until someone makes a mess that can be hard to clean up. Red wine is one of those messes that rugs do not enjoy!

Here are three simple steps that will help you in your area rug and carpet cleaning process.

Step 1: You will need a clean cloth (preferably white) to blot up as much of the red wine stain from the rug as you can. Avoid vigorous rubbing of the wine stain. Focus on slowly working the stain and making sure to soak up as much wine as you can. The more of the stain you initially soak up, the less you’ll have to remove later with cleaning solutions.

Step 2: When you finish blotting the rug with your cloth, pour a small amount of cold water directly on the remaining red wine stain. Your goal is now to dilute what remains of the wine stain. The cold water will also make blotting the remaining wine stain on the rug easier. Continue blotting the area until no more stain will come out.

Step 3: Dilute the area with a mild soap and water. You need to just keep blotting the red wine stain! We always recommend testing a small area or spot on the rug first with this mild soap.
