Removing A Red Wine Stain

Martha Stewart Living, April 2006

Red wine has a way of winding up in the wrong place. Here are some ways to ensure that it doesn't stay there for long. On delicate fabrics: Soak the spot with denatured alcohol. Flush with white vinegar to remove residual stain. On sturdy fabrics: Coat stain with salt; let stand for five minutes. Stretch stained area over a bowl; secure with a rubber band. Place in sink; carefully pour boiling water over stain from a height of at least a foot.

    has anyone made one? They look easy to make but are they? It would be a great craft for girl scouts or other youth groups.oakley sunglasses sale

    I had huge stains on my beloved and expensive white jeans. I really thought it couldn't be salvaged.
    I tried hydrogen peroxide didn't work. Then I did the hot boiling water standing on a chair over the sink...and it's a miracle- I couldn't believe it. Poof! Not only that - it made my white jeans even whiter!
    Really works. Thank you Martha!

    STAINS ON CARPET:
    1. Red Wine -- Pour white wine on it, Blot with clean towel.
    2. Bloody Mary (tomato juice) -- Pour mix of 2 TBS baking soda and 1 cup water on it. Blot with clean towel.
    Believe it or not, these work like magic when spill had just happened -- don't know if they work on dry stains. ---- Marj.
