The best chance to remove a red wine stain is to tackle it immediately, but not all is lost if the stain has already set in. So, remove that potted plant you have strategically placed on your carpet to cover the red wine stain, and lets get to the removal of the stain. With some patience and diligence that unsightly old red wine stain will fade away.
- Pour cold water directly onto the stain to saturate the problematic area. Do not apply too much water, as the liquid may soak down to the backing of the carpet and ruin the glue there. Blot the excess moisture with a clean cloth, and pour some more water onto the spot.
- Make a solution of 1 tablespoon of liquid dish-washing detergent and ½ cup of hydrogen peroxide. Blot the mixture into the stained area using a clean cloth. Blot until the area is thoroughly saturated, then leave the stain undisturbed for about 2 hours.
- Once you have waited for 2 hours, rinse out the cleaning solution by dabbing at the area repeatedly with a cloth dampened in cold water.
- Blot dry with a absorbent towel, then allow the carpet to air dry completely.
- If the stain is still visible, repeat the process.
