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