Good to know:
It’s best to remove the stain while it is sill wet. Dried wine stains are harder to remove and cleaning them will consume more of you time. Professional cleaning services Melbourne recommend that you blot the stain. Don’t rub it, rubbing the stain will help it spread in the fabric and it will make it harder for you to clean it.
Start by gently blotting the stain with a clean towel, or cloth. Make sure you are blotting and not scrubbing the stain. Otherwise, the wine will get deep into the fabric and make it very hard for you to remove it. To keep the wine from spreading, work from outside the stain, heading to the centre.
Remove the stain with white wine:
Yes, you could use white wine to remove the spots of red wine. White wine actually can help you with the difficult fight with red wine stains. Simply pour some white wine on the red wine stain. This will neutralize the stain in some way. The white wine will lift the colour off the fabric. Then you could start blotting the stain with a clean towel to remove the color.
Use club soda:
You probably have club soda somewhere around the house. Get a can and pour the liquid on the stain. The bubbles from the soda will lift the red wine. Continue pouring more club soda until the stain is at least half gone. Then you can cover the stain with salt.
If you have just spilled the wine on you clothing try using salt. Cover the stain with thick layer of table salt. Start rubbing the salt into the stain. Leave the salt on the spot at least one hour. The salt’s crystals will absorb some of the stain and will lighten the red stain, helping you to remove it afterwards with cleaning chemicals. After the stain dries, scrape the salt into the garbage.
Boil some water. You could use a big pot to boil more water in it. Stretch the clothing over the sink. When the water starts to boil, you can start pouring it on the stain. Make sure you pour the water on the opposite side of the clothing. Try pouring the boiling water onto the stain from about 2-3 feet high. The water will remove the stain. You can use soap if needed.
