How To Get Wine Out Of Carpet

We drink wine on special occasions or after a long day we just take a little drink. It tastes good, but if you spill it on your carpet you will have a nightmare removing it.

Below will be a step-by-step guide on how to remove red wine stains from your carpet easily without destroying the fabric or changing the color of the material. Make sure to follow each step carefully when mixing the cleaning solution that I will be showing you to make.

Cleaning Solution Mixture:

The cleaning mixture consists of 1 tablespoon dawn dish soap, half cup hydrogen peroxide to a small spray bottle, and add warm water until it is full. I’m using a 15 OZ spray bottle so you can add or reduce the amount of ingredients based on the size spray bottle you have.

Step 2:

using cleaning solution on stain

Now that the area is cleared, spray some of the cleaning solutions you just made on the affected stained area and outside of it a little, you can go about 1 and a half-inch from the stain. This will create a visual cut-off point so you do not spread the stain more when it loosens.

Let the cleaning solution sit for 10 minutes to allow the dawn dish soap and hydrogen peroxide to loosen the stain from the wine.


Step 3:

using a scrub brush to remove wine stain

After that 10 minutes wait, the stain will loosen now. Use the scrub brush and brush the wine stain mark in a circular direction. This motion will prevent you from spreading the wine stain even more on the carpet while it gathers all the water that the brush is picking up to the center of the stain.

You will start to see a lot of sud gathering, what you can do to get the sud way is to use some paper towel take it up. You can use the paper towel to get some of the water out if too much is gathering as well.

Step 4:

using vacuum to clean carpet

If your carpet is fluffy, you will need to make sure you don’t see any red when you move the microfiber on the carpet because the surface will look clean, but below will be red. If you see little to no red stains, you can now go ahead and use a vacuum to suck up what is remaining on the carpet. Make sure to dump the vacuum first so that the water and sud don’t clog up the dirt together inside the vacuum.


Step 5:

pouring vinegar on carpet

This is the last step where you will pour some white distilled vinegar on the stained area entirely and let it sit for 10 minutes again. The vinegar will break down any further stains that weren’t broken down by the dish soap or hydrogen peroxide.

Use the brush to brush it in a circular motion again and then use the paper towel to clean and suck up most of the vinegar. Use your vacuum to brush over the area until it looks like it is dry. It won’t be dry, so you can leave it or use a hairdryer to dry it quickly. Repeat this cleaning process until you get the results you want.

Not all wine is red wine, most of them are white but will leave a stain mark on a carpet that has a stand-out color. You will see a white lining around the stained area especially on a black carpet if you leave the wine that is spilled on it just because the wine doesn’t have any color. Eventually, this will create that white stain similar to how water stains look.

To remove this wine stain pour 1 cup of warm water on the stained area, and spray some white distilled vinegar on it. Wait 5 minutes and then you can use a scrub brush and paper towel to wipe the mark out. For deeper stains use the cleaning method to on how to remove red wine out of a carpet.
