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.

He worked on stains until both he and I were satisfied they were removed. The products used were scent-free and dry within a couple of hours. I would definitely use Dazzle services again.

Keira the receptionist was friendly and sweet every step of the way, she gave me a great discount for my cleaning and called me before and after my appointment to make sure everything went well. The guys were great, arrived on time and did a fantastic job. Top notch work all around, I;ll be recommending Dazzle to all of my friends and family. Keira, keep being your friendly charming self, it goes a long way 😉

  • 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!

  • 5 star review  I recently had Dazzle clean my parents carpet after my dogs had multiple accidents in their home. They did an amazing job removing the pet stains and their customer service skills went beyond my expectations. They were extremely knowledgeable about carpets and area rugs, and at they end of their service, they gave my mother a sachet filled with cleaning and stain removing goodies to help maintain the wonderful job they did cleaning their carpets. I highly recommended going with Dazzle, if they can clean the mess my dogs made on my parents white carpets, they can clean anything.

  • 5 star review  I’ve used this company 2 times now and am very impressed. The office staff made sure to confirm scheduled appointment time a day before visit, and also on the day to tell me that a service agent was on his way. When the Dazzle Carpet service agent arrived he was very professional, polite and got to work right away. I was very satisfied with the quality of work. I will always use this company going forward.
