Red Wine in Carpets

Q: How do you get red wine out of carpet?


A: Good question.  I had no idea so I reached out to one of my favorite wine drinkers,  my sister. She said she didn’t have any idea either since she has hardwood floors.  But she did sent me a link that looks like it would be pretty helpful:

If you try it, let us know if it works.

Cleaning Grease on Carpet

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Q: My son was recently home from college on break. While my husband and I were out, he decided to fix his motorcycle in the family room on my brand new carpet. (The game was on!) Anyway, now I need to get motorcycle gunk off my carpet. Do you have any ideas?

A: I’ve never tried to get grease off a carpet. I’m assuming that’s what you mean when you say ”motorcycle gunk”. I’ve checked online for some suggestions. Since I’ve never used any of these ideas, I strongly recommend that you check with a professional before you try these to be sure you don’t do more harm than good. Here’s what I found.
1) Use waterless hand cleaner, the type that mechanics use. Rub it on the spot and then wipe it up.
2) Resolve carpet cleaner
3) Simple Green cleaner
4) Spray WD 40 on the carpet and them immediately blotch up the stain. Once it is gone, shampoo the area.

Hope these ideas work. If anyone else has a suggestion, feel free to let us know.
