HELP!! I spilt a glass of red wine on the carpet.

Post by StitchExp626 on Mon Jun 16, 2008 7:37 am

I am putting this in this section because it will help my interpersonal relations. I hope!

Last night I spilt a glass of wine on the carpet, the colour of the carpet is cream/off white. It is a wool mix and although as soon as it spilt i got a cloth and wiped it up and spent some time on it, today there is a very light pink stain!

I have tried using dishwashing liquid but that does not work!

If anyone can suggest a method for cleaning the stain it would be really appreciated.

I once heard that you were supposed to spill white wine over the red wine stain to counteract the stain properties.

It sounded like a myth then, and it reads like one now.

Surely there must be a can of something in a supermarket/store near you that has the words 'stain remover' written on it in big letters. Being a man, practical in the face of ignorance, that would be what I'd do.

AC, thanks for your help, now how do I get rid of the white stain on my carpet?












Actually just joking as I was not game to try that method. However that website had Brenda use prewash stain remover.

So I have sprayed the stain with that. Hopefully that will work. Thanks Occam.

Actually the prewash stain remover has worked a treat, so thanks for that link.

Hi Guys, the stain on the carpet is now almost all gone so that unless you are looking for it, you would not really notice that it had red wine spilt.

Vincent that spray looks like the perfect product but I am sure they do not sell that in Australia!

Sad

Tracker I will try to get some peroxide and give that a go too.

HSM: I guess your method is a one use only one though!

SOAY Are you really sure Peanut Butter will work? I don't have any peanut butter at the moment but I do have vegemite, I wonder if that would do just as well!


Thanks to everyone and thanks to Nino, your thoughtfullness is muchly appreciated!

HI HSM, well good news it has not happened again since BUT today someone spilt beer on the carpet about a metre from where the wine was spilt. Thank goodness that was not me this time!

One question I have been meaning to ask you, and I keep putting it off as everytime I type it, it looks silly. But today I will go for it ..... are you a fan or like High School Musical. I am a big fan myself! I know the movie is a bit cheesy but it is lots of fun.

Why ask, well everytime I type HSM, I think of that show.

Well Stitch... no. As a teenager in a high school half full of boys I can't really like High School Musical unless I wanted to be bullied.

But I don't have it in for musicals. I really like Pink Floyds - The Wall which was pretty much all music. But stuff like HSM just doesnt really appeal to me.

If it helps you could put THS instead.

HSM

Now that I have asked the question I am sure that I can now type HSM without thinking about that movie and the need to ask you about it!

Although HSM3 is coming out soon!!!!

It is almost 2 AM here so I had better go get some sleep.

Two solutions that almost always work:

1. stop drinking red wine (didn't work so well for me)

2. get hardwood floors (worked great for me)

That will be 2 dollars please.

MSHL

Thanks for your advice ... allthough it is not drinking red wine that is the problem, it is the spilling it over the floor!

I live in on the 28th floor in an apartment complex and I rent so replacing the carpet sounds great it is just not feasible.

Maybe I need to invest in some rugs.

If this is to conceal evidence of your getting into the wine cabinet from your parents, spill a bottle of red ink over top of it. They'll never know.
