Removing red wine and vomit stains. Okay folks this is a two for one tip. Let's say you drank a little too much red wine and it didn't mix so well with the rest of your family dinner. You knocked the wine over onto your carpet as you're making a mad dash to visit the porcelain God. That, well let's say, you didn't make it on time. How do you remove the red wine stain? Then remove the dinner stain you coughed up? Well for starters blotting up either stain as fast as you can will make it easier to remove them. When the stains are left too long it will be harder to remove them. But not impossible. Let's start with the red wine. If you don't already have the commercially recommended removal like Wine Away, which is a miracle worker on clothes and carpets, you want to try to neutralize the red wine as quick as possible. The best way to do this is with white wine. Yes folks that is the best way to remove red wine. Simply pour the white wine on the red wine stain and start blotting up with a white clean cloth or paper towel. Keep doing this until the stain is gone. If you don't have any white wine then grab the vodka and it does the same thing. Now for the other mess, ick, well somebody has to do it the right way. First grab the paper towels and start cleaning up what hasn't made its way through the fibers of the carpeting. Then grab either the baking soda or corn starch and sprinkle it on the remaining stains and let it sit for about 15 minutes. This will absorb most of it. Then vacuum it up. This should remove most of it. If it does not then mix one tablespoon of liquid hand dish washing detergent and one tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water. Blot it up until it's absorbed. Then keep sponging with cold water and blot dry. Remember blotting is your friend.
