RealSimple.com: Our Best Holiday Stain Removal Tips and Techniques

How to Remove Red or White Wine

On table linens: For red wine stains, first dab with white wine (you read that right) and let it sit for 1 minute. Then, for both red and white wine stains, immerse in cool water for 30 minutes. Spritz with Tide Boost Pre-Treat spray and wash in the warmest water safe for the fabric, using nonchlorine bleach if the fabric allows.

On the rug: For wool, blot with cold water. If that doesn't work, apply WoolClean Spot Remover No. 1 and sprinkle with WoolClean Absorb-It Powder. For a synthetic rug, use a damp cloth to blot on diluted dish soap; rinse with a fresh section of damp cloth. Dry with paper towels. Stain still there? Have some time on your hands? Blot on a solution of ½ cup hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon ammonia. Let stand for 2 to 3 hours, covered with a piece of plastic wrap and weighted with something heavy. Apply white vinegar where the stain had been. Dry with paper towels.
