Act Fast

We might sound like a broken record at this point when it comes to discussing stain removal, but you will want to act fast. Speed is crucial when treating stains, especially one as damaging as red wine.  The moment you see the wine spill onto the carpet, grab a clean towel, preferably white, and blot the stain.  Don’t scrub or press too hard. Scrubbing can grind the stain into the carpet.

After you have blotted the stain and soaked up as much as you can onto the towel,  there are a few items that could remove the stain:

Hydrogen Peroxide/Baking Soda

Lightly spray some hydrogen peroxide on the red win stain and then sprinkle some baking soda directly over it. The combination of the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda dissolves the stains and soak up whatever particles break away from it.  After a short time, blot the area with a towel and warm water and then vacuum the remaining baking soda from the floor.

Club Soda

Club soda and carbonation are great for cleaning most any stain from fabric or carpet.  What happens is the bubbles from the carbonation penetrate deep within the stain and then pull it to the surface of the carpet for easy removal. Simply dab some club soda onto the red wine stain and watch the power of carbonation take over.

The principles of cleaning with carbonation have been mastered through the Chem-Dry signature cleaning solution, The Natural. To learn more about The Natural and carbonation as a cleaner, call Nature’s Way Chem-Dry at (262) 995-3249.

White Wine

This might sound a bit odd, but you might want to try pouring a little white wine over your red wine carpet stain. White wine is known to break down stains on hard surfaces and fabrics. However, this wouldn’t be our first choice since we’d recommend enjoying the white wine instead :)


Salt has naturally absorbs and is common in almost every kitchen.  Pour salt over the stain and then vacuum the salt and the stain particles from your floor.
