Holiday Wine Stain Removal

Removing Wine Stains

Keep your carpets and holiday sweats at their best with some helpful tips on keeping those tricky wine stains away. At White Way Dry Cleaners we can help remove stains, however there are a few things you can do to prevent permanent stains. If you can’t make it to the cleaners or to your own washing machine, here is some easy tips to help you through the holidays.


Cover the stain with a large amount of salt. Let it sit for a few minutes and the salt will absorb the wine. Applying this sooner will help lift the stain.

Dab, don’t rub!

Dab at the stain with a damp, white cotton cloth to absorb the wine. By dabbing the strain, the wine will be pulled out from the fabric. Rubbing can cause a stain to settle and result in permanent stain.


Hot Water

Rinse the fabric under boiling water. Do this slowly. Pour or rinse boiling water over the stain. Keep a good distance between yourself and the fabric. Pouring from about 8 inches up will provide enough force to flush the entire stain.

Trying to get rid of a stain can be difficult during a holiday party. We hope these tips help you throughout the winter. If you need any help removing wine stains or need any other cleaning services please feel free to give us a call at: (203) 269-4444
