It's one thing to not cry over spilled milk, but it's an entirely different scenario to hold back tears when a full glass of red wine leaves its mark on your nice carpet! What can you do to remove red wine stains from your carpet, area rugs or clothing?
Step 1 Quick Clean-up
The first step once the shock sets in is to grab a clean cloth or towel and dab the spill absorbing as much of the wine as possible. DO NOT use hot water as this will set the colour quicker and make it harder to remove the stain down the track. Also be careful not to scrub or rub the carpet as this can fluff up the area and even when stain is removed will leave a noticeable spot on your carpet where the texture is disturbed. Another option is to poor a little salt onto the spill to keep the wine from setting until you decide on who to call or what to use on the stain. This can be the hard part
Step 2 Stain Removal
The next step is removing the stain. This can be done one of two ways. The first is a DIY can or bottle available from your supermarket. The problem with these is many fabrics react different, so using the wrong product on your carpet can set the stain, bleach the carpet and in some cases can even melt your carpet. So careful consideration and research is needed when dealing with DIY solutions, and when you are staring at a bright red or purple mark, you don't have time to do this. so this is where your professional Carpet Cleaning Companies come in.
