    couple-red-wine-mainWe're not here to give relationship advice, but if you guys don't have anything planned yet to romance your significant other, you better get to it.

    Do something that's thoughtful. It doesn't even have to be expensive. And even if your significant other says she doesn't care or she hates Valentine's Day, you should still consider doing something special.

    This is for all of those wine lovers who will celebrate this Saturday evening with some bubbly.

    How to Remove Red Wine Stains from Carpet

    There are many mixtures and solutions out there, but most carpet experts agree that water, soup — dish soap liquid will do or laundry detergent — and vinegar will do the trick to remove red stains in your carpet.

    The first and most important thing to do before mixing any solution is to soak up as much of the red stain as you can in a clean towel.

    Use a dab or press technique. Do not scrub the stain.

    Take a clean towel and dab into the cleaning solution. Then, dab onto the red stain, soaking up the stain from the carpet.

    Finally, take cold water and do the same thing — dab the stain.

    There are other stronger solutions that you can make if the red stain is still evident, larger, or if the stain has been left sitting. Although, you should not leave the red stain sitting; address it as soon as possible.

    Other solutions include:

    • Dish soap + hydrogen peroxide 
    • Water + baking soda + vacuum
    • White wine + salt (let it sit for 8 hours) + vacuum

    As soon as you can, follow-up the stain with professional carpet cleaning. Most stains can stain the bottom of the carpet and reappear even after cleaning red stains.

    Professional carpet cleaners have various solutions and methods like Hot Water Extraction that can remove red stains from carpet completely.
