It happened to all of us — you've tipped over or splashed a glass of wine on the Rug and are left with a scary-looking stain. With just a few common household items, the stain will be gone in no time. So do not be scared.
Before You Begin
If your party is still going strong and you are trying to not make a big deal about the red wine stain on your carpet, blot it with paper towels, sprinkle salt on the stain, and return to your guests. The salt will absorb some of the wine that was not blotted up, and it can be vacuumed away when the guests leave.
If you do not notice the red wine spill until the next day and it has dried, the cleanup becomes more difficult. In this case, do not worry and just call us, we can clean your rug and make it look new.

Remove Wine Stains from Rug with Dish Soap & White Vinegar
For removing a red wine stain from the rug you can use dish soap and white vinegar to do the job. Follow these steps to remove a red wine spill on the carpet:
Step 1. Blot the stain as well as possible.
Step2. Prepare a cleaning solution: Add a tablespoon of hand dishwashing soap and a tablespoon of white vinegar to two cups of warm water.
Step3. Using a white cloth, only – so pigment from the cloth doesn’t bleed into your carpet – apply a small pour onto the stain, blotting frequently until the stain vanishes.
Remove Wine Stains from Carpet with baking soda
Baking soda can effectively lift stains because it's slightly alkaline and abrasive. When combined with water, it forms a gentle cleaning paste that is an affordable treatment for removing wine stains. Baking soda is safe for use on both carpet and clothing. Use baking soda as quickly as possible after a wine stain occurs to remove the blemish and make your rug or fabric as good as new.
Step 1. Blot the wine stain with a cloth towel or paper towel while it is still wet.
Step 2. Mix one part water and three parts baking soda in a small bowl until it turns into a paste.
Step 3. Apply the paste to the wine stain and allow it to dry completely.
Step 4. Vacuum the stain and baking soda paste off of the carpet.
