How to Remove Wine Stains

Wine Stains Don’t Have to Spell the End for Your Garments

Getting that red wine out of your favorite dress or shirt is a must. You can’t let that little (or big, as the case may be) mishap ruin any piece in your wardrobe or linens! Luckily, there is hope to get this and other party stains out of any kind of fabric. It involves a simple, three-step process: rinse on the spot; pretreat; and launder.

Red Wine Stains Disappear with Proper Treatment

When you first notice the stain, if you’re in a position to do so, rinse it with cold water, then blot, not rub, with a towel. The rinsing will remove some of the stain right away and lessen the concentration of the stain-causing element. Gently blotting will keep the stain from spreading and prevent pilling of the fibers. Second, once you’re back in your laundry room, pretreat the stain with our Stain Solution by applying it directly to the effected area. If the stain is particularly stubborn, mix in a bit of the All-Purpose Bleach Alternative (not to be used on wool, silk or leather) with the Stain Solution to form a paste and use a Stain Brush to work the paste into the stain. You can soak the item in a basin with a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative for up to 30 minutes. Finally, launder your garment with the appropriate detergent, in water as warm as the fabric can tolerate. Et, voilà! The wine stain is gone and your garment is ready for your next big event.
