As a messy eater who spills on herself once a day, I've been looking forward to testing out samples of Wine Off and Coffee Off stain removers that were sent to the Sugar HQ. Here's why: for years, I've dealt with what I call the red wine stain dilemma. The leading wine remover, Wine Away, has always seemed a bit too steep a price to pay for a spray when there are dozens of household items said to do the trick. But on the other hand, these homemade remedies never seemed to undo all the damage. Would Wine Off (and its brother bottle, Coffee Off) be able to solve my dilemma? Find out when you read more.
Due to a fear of red wine stain permanence, I waited until an actual (not fabricated) spill occurred. Unfortunately, it went down in the riskiest of all spots: a light patch of carpet on the living room floor. I made a faster-than-the-speed-of-lightning sprint to grab the Wine Off. There's no photo proof of this (I was too busy hyperventilating to document the scene), but within minutes, it had completely disappeared.
There was no discoloration to my carpet — it was as though nothing had ever happened!
My experience with Coffee Off was similar. Hours after spilling morning joe on a linen canvas tote, I treated the bag with several shots of the remover. In minutes, my brown blob was completely gone; all that was left was a patch that looked like it'd gotten hit by some rain.
In short, I've become a complete believer in Wine Off and Coffee Off stain removers.
Not only are they effective but, at $12.85 for both (including shipping), both also boast a much lower unit price than other red wine and coffee stain removers. My only request: that they start offering Shout-style on-the-go wipes, stat! What are your stain removal methods?
