Carpet and Foam Rubber

Follow these steps to remove red wine stains from carpet (synthetic or wool) and foam rubber:

  • Remove the sugar residue or it will cause a permanent stain.
  • Blot up what you can with an absorbent pad.
  • Apply a carpet stain remover. Or, flush the stain with a solution of 1 quart of warm water, 1/2 teaspoon liquid detergent and 1 tablespoon white vinegar.
  • Blot with a clean pad, rinse well with water, then blot up all the excess liquid with an absorbent pad.
  • Weigh the pad down with a heavy object.
  • After the liquid is fully absorbed, allow it to thoroughly air dry.
