How To Remove Wine From Carpet


Wine On Carpet


To clean wine from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

Synthetic Carpet

1.  Use an absorbent powder such as talc, etc.

2.  Soak the area liberally with cold water.  Blot dry with paper towels.  Re-soak and re-dry area until the wine has been removed from the carpet.

3.  Use a detergent solution.  Mix one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid with one cup of warm water.  Make sure the water is not hot.


Spilling wine on carpet is one of the more serious stains that can occur.  This is when having a carpet with good stain protection can really make a difference.  It's imperative that you clean the spilled wine up immediately.  This isn't a spill that you can wait on.  Run, don't walk to the pantry, grab a large roll of paper towels and start dabbing the stuff up.

Although not the end of the world, red wine can leave a permanent stain on carpet.  Speed of removal, following the proper techniques, the amount of wine spilled, and your carpet's natural stain resistance are all important factors in determining whether you will be able to successfully remove wine from your carpet.
