Here is a quick tip in case of a Holiday party wine spill on your carpeting.  Perhaps you are having a Christmas dinner and a crazy uncle is getting a bit tipsy and his wine glass tips  over spilling on the carpet.  What should you do?

As soon as wine is spilled on your carpet get a clean rag and put it over the spill and apply pressure to blot up the wine.   Keep blotting the wine up with clean towels until you cannot absorb any more wine.   Then get a damp cloth, with cold water so the stain does not set in, and blot until no more is visible on the towel.

Here are the basic steps to take whenever Wine is spilled on your floor:

  • Soak up and blot the spill area.
  • Apply a  cleaning solution.
  • Leave solution on 5 minutes or more.
  • Rinse with cold water; cover with white paper towel.

Common cleaning solutions:

Detergent Solution
Mix 1/4 teaspoon mild liquid dish soap with one cup warm water.

Vinegar Solution
Mix 2 tablespoons white vinegar with 4 cups warm water.
