Red wine is good for your heart or with a meal, but red wine stains are not good for your clothes. You may have heard that white wine can remove red wine stains, but in reality that’s just a waste of good wine. Instead, let Tide show you how to get rid of red wine stains properly.
Wet a cloth with warm water and blot the stain. If available, use Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover
- Remove the excess residue from the stain.
- Press the tip of the Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover onto the stain several times to release some of the stain remover solution.
- Rub the tip gently across the stain to remove it. If necessary, add more liquid and continue to rub gently.
- Important: If the treated area is exposed to direct sunlight, then wipe with a damp cloth or a napkin to remove excess solution.
Prepare a Soaking Solution:
First up, you’ll need to pre-treat the wine stained garment. Fill a sink, bucket or bowl with warm water and add half a scoop of Tide Powder Detergent. Mix up the solution by hand until the detergent completely dissolves.
Add your wine stained garments to the solution and leave to soak for an hour.
Extra tip: Did you know that if the stained garment keeps floating to the top, you can place a white towel on top of it to weigh it down in the soaking solution?
Preparing for wash:
Gently wring out excess water before adding it to your washer with similar items.
Wash as usual with Tide, making sure you dose correctly. Always make sure to follow the instructions on your garment’s care label.
When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
