It can happen in an instant. You spill a bit of wine on the carpet during a party and resolve to take care of it the next day. When you go to treat it, the spill has now become a hard-to-remove stain. This common occurrence underscores the importance of treating spills quickly after they occur, one of Beaulieu® of America’s spot removal tips.
Next time, follow these instructions for treating the wine spill: Immediately treat the wine spot by first blotting with a white cotton towel, starting from the outside of the spot and working in to prevent spreading. Once the spot is barely damp, apply a spot remover. We recommend purchasing a spot remover with the Carpet and Rug Institute Seal of Approval. If you don’t have a special carpet spot remover, try just plain water to dilute the stain or a homemade solution of 1/4 teaspoon of a clear dishwashing liquid mixed with one cup of warm water. Remember, never scrub a carpet stain!
