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.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

how do you remove residual red wine stains from an expensive yellow tablecloth. I'm afraid to try the salt and hot water unless someone has done it on a color with good results.

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 cheap oakley sunglasses

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.
