Red wine stain on brand new wool carpet
To my horror I spilled a glass of red wine on my very expensive, brand new 100% wool carpet. My instinct was to blot with paper towels and that is what I did immediately. Because the carpet had been microsealed, most of the wine was drawn up right away. But the following morning I noticed that there is a residual light brownish stain on the beige carpet. I have not done anything else since. It has been 3 days.
The internet has many solutions - from a white wine fix to liquid soap and a hot iron to soda water. I thought it prudent not to follow any of these suggestions, but to talk to a carpet cleaning expert. I did that just now. She said I was wise not to use a home remedy because whatever I tried would only set the stain. She then said that her carpet cleaning company would come to my home and remove the stain for $90. I asked her what they used and of course she refused to say. I feel irritated by this and am appealing to all of you out there. If there truly is a magical solution I would like to know what it is! Hope this opens some interesting and helpful discussion.
