Red Wine Spill? No problem, MacGUYver it!

wine_spill‘Tis the season for libations.  Some swear by a Bloody Mary as the ultimate hangover cure.  Well, here’s another example of fighting alcohol with alcohol.  When red wine is spilled onto your clothes or carpet, it’s white wine to the rescue. White wine neutralizes the red wine and makes it easier to lift the color off of the spill area. Just pour white wine over the stained area and blot the liquid with a thick towel (don’t rub as this will force the stain into the carpet). Once you have the majority of the spill blotted, take carpet shampoo or clothing stain remover and clean as you would if the wine stain were a bit of dirt on the carpet or clothing.  And voila, good as new!
