How to Remove Red Wine Stains | At Home With P. Allen Smith

Red wine stains? Most people think you can't get them out. Let me show you otherwise. Let

me show you a little remedy for getting this red wine out of a shirt. Just look at that

-- what a disaster. What you wanna do is -- the first thing is to try and get to as quickly

as possible before it sets up. This approach will work even if it sets up. And it's much

better if you can go through here and try and blot out any red wine you can. And in

this case, I'm able to get some of it out. You can see here the pink on the paper towel.

Now, if you spill red wine on something that needs to be dry-cleaned, you need to get it

to the dry-cleaners. This recipe will work for things that you're gonna throw in the

washer. Now the recipe for this is really simple: All you're doing is taking 1 cup of

hydrogen peroxide, and you're gonna add that to 1 teaspoon of just a mild dishwashing liquid.

So here's a teaspoon of the dishwashing liquid here in a bowl, and add 1 cup of hydrogen

peroxide -- just gonna mix that. And then just take a little sponge, completely soak

the sponge about half. You don't wanna rub the fabric, you simply wanna blot the stain.

The reason for this is that you don't wanna drive the stain deeper into the fibers of

the fabric. You also don't want to mess up the sort of finish on the fabric. Just taking

a gentle approach like this is all you need. The soap will help release the wine particles

from the fiber, and the hydrogen peroxide will, through its effervescence, lift those

particles out to the surface. Once you finish blotting, throw it in the washer and wash

it in cool water, unless the directions on the garment indicate otherwise. And then just

let it air dry. Then the garment will be as good as new. I've tried this multiple times,

and it always works. Give it a try. Now this is going in the washer. Here we go, my shirt

is as good as new. Oh, man…
