Say Goodbye to Red Wine Stains with These 5 Easy Steps!

Are you dealing with a pesky wine stain that just won't come out? Don't worry, Tama Laundry is here with some helpful advice on how to effectively remove wine stains from your clothing. Here are five easy steps to get your clothes looking fresh and new again:

  1. Blot the stain with a damp cloth: As soon as the spill occurs, take a damp cloth and start blotting up as much of the liquid as possible. This will help stop any further absorption of the red dye into the fabric.

  2. Pre-treat with laundry detergent: Apply a generous amount of laundry detergent directly onto the stain and allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes before laundering it in your washing machine. The laundry detergent will help break down and lift away any residual spots left behind by the wine.

  3. Use cold water when laundering: It is important to use cold water when washing a stained item because warm/hot water can cause red dyes to set into fabric more deeply. If possible, pre-soak your garment in cold water overnight before laundering it in your machine in order to give it an extra cleanse from all angles!

  4. Add an oxalic acid treatment: If you find that the stain still isn’t coming out after normal laundering methods, try adding an oxalic acid treatment such as distilled white vinegar or lemon juice mixed with baking soda to help reduce any remaining discoloration.

  5. Spot treat with hydrogen peroxide: As a last resort, you can try spot treating the area with hydrogen peroxide which works well on organic stains like wine due to its bleaching properties. Just be sure not to use too much of this solution or else you may end up damaging your garments instead!

With these five helpful tips, you'll be able to easily tackle even the toughest red wine stains so they don't stand between you and looking great in no time!
