Cleaning Red Wine Spills 101

by Nov 27, 2018Stain Remover0 comments

There is no need to panic when red wine is accidentally spilled on your carpet or sofa, or even that clean and crisp white shirt of yours. In a few easy steps the Dazzle CC team can teach you how to reduce and get to that hard-to-not-see red wine spill before it stains. It happens to the best of us and more regularly then we like to admit. 

There are a few items you need to ensure the best removal of the spill.

  • clean white cotton cloth
  • bowl
  • dishwashing liquid
  • white vinegar
  • boiling water

Follow These Steps

  1. Blot, don’t rub.
    Blot the stain with a damp, white cotton cloth to absorb any excess wine. (Rubbing is the wrong move because it will actually set the stain and spread the stain entirely.)
  2. Make a cleaning solution: In a large bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and 2 cups of warm water. Stir to combine the three ingredients.
  3. Soak stain with the solution: Soak a clean cloth in the vinegar mixture, and then dab it on to the stained part of the carpet. The mixture will seep into the carpet fibers, loosening the stain.

    Use a second dry cloth to blot up the liquid as you go. Alternate between dabbing on the vinegar solution and drying it up.

  4.  Wet the stain with cold water: Soak a third cloth in cold water and press it into the stain to dilute the wine. Alternatively, pour a little water directly onto the stain. Soak up the water by dabbing with your “drying” cloth.Repeat as many times as needed. For maximum effectiveness, you may need to run through the steps above several times and to create a new mixture if needed.

  • 5 star review  I had the Dazzle come in to have our carpet cleaned prior to the arrival of our newborn. It was a very last minute decision and initially, I was hesitant about cleaning the carpet as I remembered it would usually leave a strong chemical smell and I had to ventilate the whole house for at least a couple days. We are a family of two young toddlers and a newborn on the way and I was not sure if I wanted to risk having the wet and chemical soaked carpet only a couple weeks before my due date. But I realized I worried for nothing. I was able to get an appointment promptly and get the work done in a matter of a few days. Rob and his assistant did a fantastic job! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about the smell or ventilation as there was none and the carpet were spotlessly clean. They convinced me that I could have a clean, if not cleaner, carpet without having to use strong chemical filled products. I would highly recommend to anybody but especially, for families with young children like ours who can appreciate their plant based products that are safer to little ones. All in all, I am 120% satisfied with their work and would love to have them come back to clean our carpet in the future again!

  • 5 star review  From start to finish, I am so impressed and pleased with Dazzle's Carpet Cleaning service. Kiera was kind and accommodating when booking the appointment and promptly followed up right until the technician arrived at our door. Mattias, the technician, was pleasant and thorough, and he took care to make sure our carpets were to our liking. The carpet dried quickly and was definitely clean afterwards! We have had different companies in over the years, but I think we are going to stick with Dazzle from now on.

  • 5 star review  Dazzle was one of the few places I called looking to have my sofa cleaned. In the end, I chose this company simply because the person over the phone was polite and professional. Aiden was the technician that arrived at my home, and not only did he get the nasty stains out of my sofa, but he gave me cleaning related knowledge that I was unaware of. He was also super kind, polite, and professional. I’ll definitely be sticking with Dazzle for future services!
