How to Remove Red Wine, Beer & Other Alcohol Spills from Carpet & Upholstery in Riverside CA; Call Leading Carpet Cleaning for Professional Stain Removal

With the holiday season behind us, it is time to get the house back in order and get back to the day to day routine. Over the holiday period, you may have had parties where your favorite alcoholic beverages where served. Perhaps only now you have realized the various stains among your carpet and upholstery. Or perhaps in celebrating another holiday rush over, you spilled a fresh glass.

Leading Carpet Cleaning would like to share with you some tips on removing alcohol stains from carpet and upholstery.

Red Wine Carpet Stain Removal:

1. On a fresh spill, blot up as much of the liquid as you can with a paper towel. If it is dried out, lightly dampen the stain with cool water.
2. In a clean bucket, mix 1 Tbsp of liquid dish soap, 1 Tbsp white vinegar and 2 cups of warm water.
3. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the mixture onto the stain, being careful not to over saturate the stain. Blot frequently until stain dissolves. If needed, use a clean, white, dry cloth to control the liquid distribution.
4. Rinse with cool water with another clean cloth and sponge on while blotting.
5. Towel dry.
If stain persists, try 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts hydrogen peroxide, and follow steps 3-5.

Red Wine Upholstery Stain Removal:

1. Blot as much liquid as possible with a paper towel.
2. Mix 1 Tbsp liquid dish soap and 2 cups cold water.
3. Sponge the solution onto the stain carefully, and blot as you go until stain is dissolved.
If upholstery requires dry cleaning, apply your dry cleaning solvent according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Other Alcoholic Beverage Carpet Stain Removal

1. Blot as much of the liquid out as you can using either white paper towels or rags.
2. Mix together 1 Tbsp dish liquid soap and 2 cups warm water, and sponge it on the affected area. Carefully blot. Don’t rub or scrub.
3. With a cloth dampened with clear water and rinse the soapy area.
4. In a spray bottle combine 1 Cup white vinegar and 2 Cups warm water. Make sure to mix thoroughly and apply the new solution to the blemish. With a dampened cloth from clear, cold water, blot the stain. Continue to absorb the liquids while blotting until dissolved.
5. Towel dry area, and allow remaining dampness to air dry.
6. Once the area is completely dry, vacuum to relax the fibers to their original state.
NOTE: Whether you use a commercial product, or a home remedy, always conduct a patch test in an inconspicuous area to ensure the cleanser will not compromise the integrity or color of your carpet fibers or upholstery.
