This video showing you how to remove red wine stains in carpet suggest making a paste out of water and baking soda to clean up the mess. As a professional carpet cleaner in Tampa FL I can tell you that this is not a good solution. Any time you apply baking soda to carpet it will stay there forever. Baking soda is a very fine powder that easily finds it's way down into the carpet backing. As the wine cleaning solution in this video dries it will leave a white haze on the carpet where it was applied. That haze can be removed by a professional carpet cleaner, but why bother calling a professional when you have one right here.
I know there are hundreds of videos online showing you how to remove red wine stains from carpet, but most are done by people who are not professional carpet cleaners and have no idea what they are doing. I have even seen a few done by professional carpet cleaners who don't know what they are doing. here are some easy steps to getting out red wine stains.Blot up the wine with a white terry cloth towel. Make sure to blot the wine. Don't rub or scrub it with the towel. Once there is no more color transfer to the towel its time to clean out the rest of the wine. Pour water on the wine spots, yes plain ordinary water. If you have carbonated water or sparkling water it works even better. Use twice as much water as there was spilled in the carpet. Wait at least 30 seconds. Take a new white terry cloth towel and blot it up the water and wine in the carpet. Continue until the water and wine are gone.
I know this sounds entirely too simple and easy and it is. Don't bother with the baking soda that will never come out of the carpet. Just use good old H2O.
