This past weekend there was an accident in the household, and red wine landed on a cloth chair in my mother’s living room. Naturally, my two sisters and I had our laptops out in less than thirty seconds, searching Pinterest for stain remedies. Here’s exactly how we saved ourselves from our mother’s wrath.
Step 1. Lightly blot excess wine with a clean rag or paper towels. Just be smart and try not to rub the wine in.
Step 2. Pour white vinegar on the stain. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. Be patient and try not to panic ;). Again blot excess moisture with a clean rag or paper towel.
Step 3. Pour laundry detergent on the stain. By this time we could hardly tell where the stain was.. Let the detergent sit for about 5 minutes. Blot the excess moisture and let dry.
Voila, with simple household items and some patience, you may never have to worry about a red wine stain again. Trust me, it was really as easy as it sounds.
