    Pour some baking soda on the stain. Then pour some vinegar. Let it foam up. Then blot from outside in so not to spread the stain.

    Hi Christopher. I'm Cindy. In a small bowl pour 2 cups of warm water and then add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 tablespoon of dish washing liquid. Dip a sponge into this solution and begin applying it directly on the stain. Blot it up with a clean cloth. Continue this process until stain is gone.

    Hi Christopher: Mix one tablespoon of washing-up liquid with one tablespoon of white vinegar and two cups of water. Use a towel to blot the mixture onto the stain. Gently blot the area with a separate, dry towel until the stain has disappeared. Soak up as much of the wine as you can with a clean, dry towel.

    Or, you can used OxiClean. Here's the site for that:

    Good luck

    As with most stains, it's best to blot the stain to remove any wine that hasn't been absorbed yet. You can use paper towels or a clean cloth. In a small bowl, pour two cups of warm water. Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar and one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid.

    I’ve done all of the above, and they didn’t work well because the wine had sat in the carpet partially cleaned up too long.

    I bought food grade hydrogen peroxide at 15% strength and it finally took it out.

    Caution: at that strength, it is caustic to skin & one must wear gloves.

    After it is cleaned, it will need to be extracted with a wet/dry shop vac, rinsed with distilled water & extracted again.

    Christopher....I would try Blue Magic from AutoZone...we have found it to work on so many fabrics. Good luck

    Hydrogen Peroxide should remove the stain. I would test it first for color fastness of your carpet as it might lighten or bleach it.
