MyWineSpill tells you how to clean it up...

Ha, this is my tongue in cheek #DIY explanation on the best way to remove that awful wine spill stain. 

If you have dropped that precious glass of Cabernet on your exquisite ivory Persian rug. Stop, drop and blot using a clean white absorbent material to avoid the possibility of dye transfer and to facilitate visualization of the stain removal process. Since stains transfer to the towel and you have a very short window of time before the stain will set permanently. 

Make sure you do a pretest in an inconspicuous area of the rug or carpet. To do this, dampen with the chemical and leave o for 10 minutes and then blot with a clean white towel. Look for dye transfer on the towel and if there is damage to your rug. If bleeding, color change, or other damage occurs, consult a cleaning expert.

But, since spills are never anticipated have on hand the materials below for a quick homemade solvent that could save your rug.

A homemade recipe for red wine stain removal:
  • Use plain water or mix one tablespoon of liquid hand dishwashing detergent and one tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water.
  • Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with plain water or the detergent/vinegar solution. Apply a little bit at a time, blotting frequently with a dry cloth until the stain disappears.
  • If using a detergent/vinegar solution, sponge with cold water and blot dry.
