The Best Wine Stain Remover

This recipe is so simple yet so effective it works on other stains, too. Several red wine recipes were tested by a student at University of California and the results were that this particular combination works best every time. Separately, the ingredients are not effective, but the combination works on many different stains.Mix liquid dishwashing soap with hydrogen peroxide. There is no exact measurement but a little more hydrogen peroxide to soap is recommended. For washables, presoak the stain in the solution for 20 to 30 minutes, then wash as usual. The red wine stain will be gone. This formula will work on old stains that have previously been laundered, dried stains, any stain. The hydrogen peroxide must be fresh to be effective.

For red wine stains on carpets, put the solution in a spray bottle and spray the stain, or you can lightly pour the solution on the stain. Blot up the solution until the stain is gone, then blot the area with a wet or damp rag to remove the solution.
You may try this on wool and other dry clean fabrics, carefully and after testing a small hidden area to check for any alterations to the fabric caused by the solution. Use a cotton swab to apply the formula on the stain, then blot up the solution from the fabric. Be sure to point out where the stain was to your dry cleaner.

Other Methods

This one is fairly successful if you do it as soon as the stain happens. Put corn starch or talcum powder on the stain and wait. After 10 to 20 minutes, brush off the powder. Most, if not all, of the stain should be removed because the powder absorbed it.
On clothes, furniture, rugs and carpets, pour club soda on the stain then apply a layer of table salt. The club soda loosens the stain and the salt absorbs it. Remove the salt as much as you can, then either wash the garment or vacuum the furniture or rug.
