Red wine stains can be one of the most difficult stains to get out of material. But with the advances of detergents and with the right knowledge you can minimize the risks of a permanent red wine stain on your fabric.
Mop up excess liquid then cover the red wine stain with salt, and allow the salt to absorb the wine for about 30 minutes.
Then sponge the mark with a warm solution of bleach-containing biological detergent, rinse with cold water and wash as normal.
For immediate spillage of red wine, pour white wine on spilled red wine and dry by dabbing.
Red wine can stain purple if left to dry. This can be treated by sprinkling Borax on the stain and running hot water, not boiling onto the stain. Then wash the garment in a strong solution with a good detergent.
