How to Remove Red Wine from Carpets

The unimaginable has happened and you have spilled red wine on your or  carpet, and upholstery. Because of the beverage’s deep pigment and tannin content, red wine stains are notoriously stubborn and difficult to remove. However, knowing the right way to treat wine stains on carpet and upholstery.


It is important to act as quickly as possible! The longer the wine has to settle into the carpet the more difficult it will be to remove the stain. Before you do anything else, blot the area with a clean white cloth to absorb all the moisture of the wine, it is VERY important to only lightly blot the area and NOT to rub. This will prevent the wine from sinking any further into the carpet fibers. Next you will need to find out what fibre/material your carpet or rug is made form. If it is a rug – this information is usually displayed on a label underneath the carpet. For carpets – you may need to contact the manufacture.

To remove wine from natural-fiber carpet and area rugs, dab the stain with warm, sudsy water, then blot dry. Dab with a solution that’s 1 part clear ammonia to 8 parts water, then blot dry. Dab with a 50-50 vinegar-water solution, then blot dry. Dab with warm, sudsy water again. Dab with water. Blot dry. Repeat all if necessary.

To remove wine from synthetic carpet, dab the stain with warm, sudsy water. Wait 15 minutes, then blot dry. Dab in a solution that’s 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water. Wait 15 minutes more, then blot with a damp cloth. Blot with lukewarm water. Blot dry. Repeat steps until stain lifts.
