Casa Quickie: Red Wine Carpet Spill Clean-Up

One of your holiday party guests has just spilled her red wine all over your light-colored carpet. What to do? Don't start rearranging the furniture just yet. Your carpet will be like new in no time, with a few simple steps:

  1. Blot as much of the red wine up as possible using a rag.
  2. Pour white wine onto the spot, which dilutes the red pigmentation.
  3. Then, wash with a little soap and water.
  4. Be sure to treat the spot as soon as possible. This won't work once the spill has dried.
