Red Wine Stains
The joys of wine are many, alone or with a meal, for a special occasion, a party, or for no reason at all, a glass of red wine can be a wonderful pleasure on the palate and a wonderful way to celebrate, enhance a meal or just relax.
Now it turns out this nectar of the Gods is also good for you (in moderation of course) as it is chock full of antioxidants, flavenoids, polyphenols, resveratrol, and other good stuff that protects against heart disease and other health risks. The skin of the grape, which is responsible for turning the wine red, adds additional benefits over white varieties.
This marvelous beverage is a source of deep enjoyment for people the world over, from the connoisseur to the casual drinker, however, if a glass or bottle gets spilled, the resulting red wine stain is anything but a joy.
The deep, color of a burgundy, a Chianti, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Merlot, a Beaujolais, a Malbec, the Chilean Reds, may look beautiful in the glass, but they’re not very beautiful spilled on a rug, your couch, your shirt, a brand new dress, a silk tie, or even your favorite shorts or tee-shirt.
Here’s the good news . . . with proper treatment, products and procedures, red wine is almost always removable from most fabrics and most surfaces, as long as you follow the Directions for Removing Red Wine Stains.

Hints for Treating a Red Wine Stain
- Keep in mind the Cardinal Rule of Stain Removal: The fresher the better. So, get it while it’s wet! Much easier to treat while still wet than after it dries
- Avoid scrubbing or rubbing the stain - this just makes the wine penetrate deeper into the fabric and spread more. Blot with a clean cloth instead of rubbing.
