Spilling red wine on your carpet is terrible – not only do you not know what to do but you are afraid that the stain might not be removed. I have been there, I have spilt red wine on my carpet, and I must say this carpet was my favourite thing in my living room. I loved it so much that I had to find a way to treat the stain. I had no idea how to remove it but I did know one thing – if I grab a paper towel and start rubbing the red wine then I will drive the stain even deeper.
After spending a lot of time browsing on the internet and asking my friends if they knew any cleaning method which will be able to get rid of red wine I finally managed to remove it successfully – and I will share with you how I did that!
How To Remove Red Wine Stains From Your Carpet?
You need to prepare the following ingredients:
- Soda Water
- Baking Soda
- A few cloths
- An empty bowl
- A vacuum cleaner
Start off with gently dabbing the excess liquid with a clean cloth. You want to absorb as much as possible without scrubbing so that you don’t make an even bigger mess.
Then grab the soda water and pour a small amount of it on the affected area. Let the water fizz for a few seconds then grab another clean cloth and dry the area.
Next, get the baking soda you prepared and sprinkle it all over the affected area. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes (so that it can absorb the liquid) then vacuum the powder but make sure you leave a bit of the baking soda.
Continue with pouring a small amount of the soda water once again then massage it into the affected area with a cloth.
The stain should be removed at this point, however, the area will be wet. Grab the baking soda once again and sprinkle it on top. Let it sit overnight so that the powder will absorb any liquid that is left behind. In the morning use your vacuum cleaner to get rid of the powder!
