Dab the clothing with the cloth and often the stain will be reduced immediately. You can also try one of the household remedies found on diverse websites and blogs on how to remove red wine. Note: these methods do not guarantee success:
1. An old newspaper and kitchen salt
A red wine stain on your tablecloth? Lay an old newspaper under the tablecloth with the wine stain and pour a generous amount of kitchen salt on the stain. The kitchen salt will absorb the wine and after a while most of the stain will have disappeared, especially after washing.
2. Jenever (Dutch gin)
You can also use jenever. Pour jenever on the stain and the stain will often disappear before your eyes. If that is not the case, repeat the treatment.
3. Sparkling water
In addition to jenever, sparkling water is also an option. Pour it on the red wine stain and the next day it will be partially or completely gone.
4. White wine
White wine is another good household tip. It dilutes the stain, but in general will not work as a complete red wine removal. White wine also has a high sugar content which is not good for the fabric.
You can also try using beer to remove red wine stains. But you often end up creating a new stain. It may be a solution for clothing as you can throw them in the washing machine immediately. This method is not recommended for upholstery or carpet since they cannot be washed in the washing machine.
Vinegar can also be used to remove red wine stains.. But the colour can remain in the fabric if you use vinegar. Vinegar is also quite aggressive and can damage your carpet or clothing.
