During a pleasant evening you accidentally drop your glass of red wine on your carpet. Do not panic. If you follow the following steps, your carpet will be clean again in no time.
There is already 1 golden rule when it comes to spilling red wine on your carpet:be very quick ! This prevents the wine from getting into the fibers of the carpet, causing a stain. It is therefore very important to react immediately when the red wine has only just been placed on the carpet .
Step 1:Dab with a wet cloth
Take a cloth and wet it with lukewarm water . If necessary, add a drop of highly diluted shampoo. Gently dab over the red wine with your cloth . Be careful : do not rub the liquid with your cloth , but only dab over the drops . Rubbing will only make the stain bigger.
Continue to blot for 1 minute until the red wine is completely gone. If dabbing with lukewarm water is not enough, proceed to the next step
Step 2:Lukewarm water with vinegar
Take back your cloth with lukewarm water and add a dash of vinegar . Dab over the red wine stains again until they are completely gone.
Step 3:Let it dry for a while
To finish, take a dry cloth and blot away any remaining moisture. Let your rug dry for a while and your carpet is spot-free again.
