If the red wine is accidentally spilled on your carpet, this solution is perfect for you.
Keep a portable spot carpet machine handy. You only add water. You can add hydrogen peroxide or the cleaning solution for extra stain removal power.
If you want to skip the convenient spot cleaner, you can use a wine remover spray.
It comes in little bottles so you can bring one to a party for wardrobe emergencies. As well, good to know that it’s safe to use around kids and pets.
I’ve also got a DIY version for you. You will need vinegar and a few pieces of paper towel.
Step 2: Dry It
Act as soon as possible. Bring towels and blot the carpet so that the excess liquid comes off quickly.
Get rid of the liquid rolling over the carpet and prevent it from spreading.

The next step is to cover the stain with the vinegar or wine stain removal spray.
Saturate it depending on the amount of red wine that has been spilled.

Then blot away the wetness with a towel.
