Red wine stains

When it comes to red wine stain removal, white wine can be a valuable resource. White wine counteracts the red wine and makes it easier to remove the original red wine stain.

Simply pour a small amount of white wine over the red wine stain and blot with a clean, absorbent towel. Be sure you do not rub or wipe at red wine stained fabrics, as this will only set the stain deeper within the fabric. Once you have blotted and removed as much of the stain as possible, pop the garment in the wash with your usual detergent and a capful of ACE for Colours. Remember to not place the item in the dryer as the heat from the dryer can cause the stain to set, making it difficult to remove.

Salt

Pour a thick layer of salt over the red wine stain to prevent it from spreading and setting. Then, when you are ready to treat the stain, remove or vacuum the salt. Remember, the sooner you salt the item of clothing, the better the chance it will help stop the stain from setting — making it easier to lift. Finally, pop the garment in the wash with your usual detergent and a capful of ACE for Colours. Remember to not place the item in the dryer as the heat from the dryer can cause the stain to set, making it difficult to remove.

Alternatively, soak your fabric with 10 litres of water, one dosing cap of ACE for Colours and your usual detergent. Leave it up to one hour and then rinse thoroughly.

Always remember to read the label on the item of clothing first.
