Removal of red wine stains from carpet?  Dried in

Step One

Blot the spill with paper towels or a clean cloth.

Combine 1 teaspoon carpet shampoo (or dish soap, like Dawn) and 1 cup hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Soak a clean sponge in the mixture, squeeze it halfway dry, then gently blot the stain. Continue until the stain lifts.

Step Three

Sponge the stained area with warm water.

    Never ‘rub’ or ‘scrub’ red wine stain on carpets. This does two things, first it rubs the stain into the carpet instead of blotting the red wine stain out of the carpet and secondly it frays the natural and synthetic fibers of the carpet.

    Since this is a dried in stain I will skip over all the quick "remove it while its wet" answers. But FYI – The longer a stain sits, the more it will set and removing wine stains becomes hard. If there is not enough time to use a home remedy mixture to remove the red wine stains on carpets, pour salt or club soda on the stain to prevent the red wine stain from setting into the carpet.

    For red wine stains that have set into the carpet, use a commercial stain remover. The best red wine stain remover is Wine Away (wineaway.com). This has saved my bacon (and my carpet) more than once! Hey even Good Housekeeping gives it full stars! This is one of the best red wine stain removers on the market today. This stain remover can be purchased in large household sized bottled or small carry-around bottles. Wine Away is a safe wine stain remover that will not damage materials in carpets, including oriental or Persian carpets, when the directions are followed. To remove red wine stains from carpets, simply spray Wine Away on the stain, wait until the area is dry and blot the stain away with a dry towel.

    Most red wine stains are removed by pouring white wine over the stain, once this has been done , you blot with kitchen roll. You can try , but normally this should be done on the spot when it happens. So I can suggest you add a small amount of cold water to the stain, add salt. like you do with blood stains. The red wine should lift onto the salt , rinse with clear water
