Wine Stain Removal
Friday, January 16, 2015
Not really news, but important information for all wine lovers from Bob Vila!

"Red wine – and its nonalcoholic cousin, grape juice – may be the most common and damaging stains. If you see a spill, blot the area with clean towels right away, then apply a home remedy of white vinegar followed by plain water. You also can try a carpet shampoo at full strength; rinse thoroughly with water."

Personally, I've always had great success with Spot Shot on my white carpet.
