Red wine is one of the most common carpet stains. It’s really easy to accidentally knock over or spill wine on your rug or upholstery, and if you have cream or white carpets you might be concerned that it will leave an unsightly stain.
If you do spill wine on your carpet, try and deal with it straight away. Use kitchen towel or similar to blot the stain to absorb as much of the excess liquid as you can. Once you have absorbed the spilled wine, spray a product such as 1001 Troubleshooter or 1001 Mousse on the stain. Wait for up to 5 minutes, then massage the product into the stained area.
Once you’ve thoroughly cleaned the carpet, remove any excess dirt or foam with a dry cloth and leave the area to dry. Once dry, vacuum the treated area.
