3 Steps to Remove Wine from Carpets

Worried about stains on your carpet? With the festive season approaching and the risk of red wine spills increasing, we have 3 easy steps to remove red wine from your carpet. With the best range of carpets Glasgow has on offer, you can be sure that we have stain proof flooring for your home, for further protection against wine stains this party season.

Step One: Blot

As soon as the spill occurs, grab a white cloth and try to blot out as much of the stain as possible. Try your best to soak up the majority of the spill so that less wine is left to remove from the carpet fibres.

Step Two: Water

Once you have blotted the carpet as much as you can, pour some wine straight onto the wine stain. The water will dilute the wine, allowing you to blot up more of the spillage, again, continue blotting until no more of the stain can come out.

Step Three: Baking Soda

Having blotted the carpet as much as possible, it is time to cover the area with a mixture of baking soda and water. Using the ratio of three parts baking soda and one-part water, create a paste which can be applied directly onto the carpet and the stain. Allow the paste time to dry, then vacuum the area to remove the stain! Check out some other excellent uses for baking soda.

We bought carpets and LVT from joe walkers flooring for our new house and I couldn't be happier with the service and end result. The team in the showroom are very knowledgable and allow you time to look around without pouncing on you and trying to sell to you like you would get in larger companies. Danny came out and measured the house and once we had chosen the flooring, joe sent me the quote promptly. The day of the fitting, joes fitters arrived on time and worked quickly and efficiently and left no mess behind. I would not hesitate in recommending friends and family go to joe walkers flooring.
