Removing Wine Stains from Your New Carpet

Accident  Spilled Red Wine and Glass on Carpet Insurance Claim

A little spilled Shiraz doesn’t have to ruin the aesthetic appeal of your new carpet. If you spilled some wine onto your floor, you can clean it up and return the rug’s original appearance using the following simple tips:

Blot, Blot, and Blot Again
When trying to remove stains from a carpet, you should always start off by blotting—not scrubbing—the affected area with a clean cloth. Start at the outside of the stain and work your way in. Removing the excess liquid before it has a chance to spread is your best bet when it comes to fighting a permanent stain.

Add Some Soap and Water
Once you have blotted up as much of the stain as you can, mix one tablespoon of a gentle dishwashing detergent and one tablespoon of vinegar with two cups of warm water. Use a clean cloth to apply the cleaning solution to the stain and blot the area with a dry cloth as you go.

Take It to the Next Level
If there is still some residual wine left in your carpet, you might want to take your cleaning routine up a notch. Mix together one part hand dishwashing detergent with two parts hydrogen peroxide, and then apply with a sponge. Use a clean, dry cloth to blot up as much as you can. If this technique still does not work, it might be time to call in the professionals for help with the stain removal.
