We wash the wine off the carpet - 4 techniques

Tipped over a glass of red wine? Dirty carpet? Do not worry! This can happen to anyone. If a burgundy shade of red drink on the carpet doesn't match curtains, I’ll tell you how to wipe wine off the carpet with the help of a kitchen cabinet.

I will give four proven methods.

Method number 1 - table vinegar

The first method involves the use of table vinegar.

  1. Remove wine from a carpet with a cloth or paper towel. Do not rub strongly; otherwise, pigments will penetrate deep into the product.
  2. Collect with a napkin from the edge to the center. So pollution will not increase.
  3. If there are no rags or paper towels, sprinkle a little salt on a dirty place. When salt absorbs wine, collect it with a vacuum cleaner.
  4. Make a cleaning solution. In a small bowl, pour two cups of heated water, add a tablespoon of vinegar and detergent. Shuffle. With a clean cloth dampened in solution, blot the stain. After using a dry rag. Repeat the procedure several times. Finally, rinse with cold water and dry with a cloth.

Method number 2 - soap and peroxide

If the first method did not work, pay attention to the second method - the use of soap and hydrogen peroxide.

  1. Make a solution of hydrogen peroxide and regular soap. The amount depends on the size of the pollution. I recommend the resulting mixture immediately put on the carpet in an inconspicuous place. So you make sure that the paint is not damaged.
  2. With a solution, blot the stained area with a clean rag. I do not recommend rubbing, otherwise the size of the contamination will increase.
  3. In a bucket of cold water, add a little soap and spray a speck. Better use a spray gun. Then blot again with a clean cloth.
  4. Blot with warm water. If traces of wine disappear, use a clean rag to remove any soap. Cover the treated area with a clean paper towel and press down with something. After 2 hours, remove the towel and vacuum the carpet.

Method number 3 - baking soda

If hydrogen peroxide was not found, and the vinegar suddenly ended, baking soda will come to the rescue.

  1. Blot the soiled carpet well with a paper towel or a clean rag. Collect as much wine as possible.
  2. Pour some water over the dirt.Use only clean rags.
  3. Pour three parts of water into a small container and add one part of soda. Apply the resulting mixture to the stain and let dry.
  4. After drying, vacuum the carpet. If there is little contamination left after the procedure, the usual carpet cleaner will handle it.

Method number 4 - salt

  1. Dilute contamination with white wine or clean water.
  2. Blot with a damp sponge to remove the top layer of wine and slightly dilute. Do not press the sponge firmly against the carpet. Rubbing is completely prohibited.
  3. Pour salt onto the place to be treated. When absorbed, add more salt.
  4. After about 8 hours, collect the salt with a vacuum cleaner. Traces of wine should disappear.

I provided a formidable anti-stain weapon on the carpet. If the methods help, be sure to tell them to your friends.

If the New Year is approaching and you plan a big event at home, it’s better to give up New Year's contests with wine. Otherwise, unpleasant consequences on the carpet can not be avoided.
