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.

Simple remedy

There are simple remedies possible for DIYers. Other than white wine mix, check for this solution. Mixing one-quarter dish-washing detergent with lukewarm water through blotting motion and pouring it on to the stained carpet followed by bllotting the spill using a clean cloth and water should do the trick for you. Check this article on how to clean stubborn stain from carpets . As you said rightly, there are so many solutions available with internet like the club soda method. Since you are bit cautious about DIY methods its better to take the help of high level industrial cleaning services.

Call a PRO

I suggest paying $90 for a professional. It is not about cleaning solution but it is about the skills and equipment. You can go to any carpet cleaning equipment store and get professional chemicals, but if you don't have equipment to extract it, the results won't measure up to a professional job.

I don't think that a white wine fix could repair your carpet. It is better to go for a professional cleaning service.

There are two easy solutions for it:
1. DIY method - Use alcohol and a microfiber cloth to wipe off hard carpet stains. This remedy will remove every kind of hard stain from the carpet.
2. Go professional - I often face this problem as I always have kids at my home. Initially I used to solve them by DIY methods, but later on I hired Mr. Homecare, who has become my savior now. They perform a dry foam & an extraction treatment to shampoo the carpet, leaving it clean and soft once completed.

I would recommend you to opt a professional carpet cleaning company. They not only remove those hard stains, but also make sure to not wreak the aesthetic of the carpet.

Hope this helps!

Carpet cleaning

It's probably too late for you to remove it yourself now. Like all stains on carpets, it's important to act fast before the stain actually sets into the fibres.

You can check out this article on carpet stain removal tips which has a section on removing red wine stains among other things.

Once set you will need some commercial grade chemicals to remove it (there are ones specifically designed to remove wine and blood color stains). However, I wouldn't recommend using this unless you happen to own a commercial carpet extractor as the chemical can discolor carpets like bleach if not removed properly after application.

Good tips.This is a remarkably simple way to remove red wine from a woollen rug. Baking soda is superb for removing stains. You can use professional cleaning service to do it. Thanks though, it has given me a great idea! Thank you!
