how to get rid of wine stains from clothesby Pamtec Enviro Systems Road Sweeping Machines
Spilling wine on your clothes is one of life's most common tragedies. But let me tell you something: It doesn't have to be a tragedy. You can get the stain out, and you don't even need to be sad about it! Here are some of my favorite ways to get rid of wine stains from clothes.
Soak in cold water for an hour.
Soak in cold water for an hour.
This is your first step. After you spill wine on your clothing, soak the garment in cold water for at least an hour before washing it. The longer you soak the stain, the better. If after soaking you still see some residue from the stain, move on to another method of removing it (we recommend using a laundry pretreatment).
Rub in salt for about 20 minutes.
The last resort is to use a little salt. Rub it into the stain and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse off with cold water and repeat if necessary, but try not to rub too hard—you don't want to end up with even more stains!
Rub in a paste of salt and lemon juice.
If you've got a wine stain on your clothes, try rubbing in a paste of salt and lemon juice. Lemon juice is acidic and will help to neutralize the wine stain, while the salt helps to absorb the stain.
How long should you rub in this paste? If it's only a small area and easy to reach, ten seconds should do the trick. If you're working with an area that's harder to get at or larger than can be handled within ten seconds, then go ahead and leave it overnight (so long as it doesn't contain any harmful chemicals). You don't need to rinse this off—just let it sit until dry before washing as usual. Repeat as necessary!
Try ammonia or hydrogen peroxide, if the stain is still there.
If you're going to try the ammonia or hydrogen peroxide method, be sure to use a very small amount of either one. Again, don't soak the fabric in these chemicals—just apply them with a cotton ball or clean rag and rub gently until the stain is gone. If this doesn't work for you, consider adding a dab of liquid detergent to the mix before applying more ammonia or hydrogen peroxide. Rinse in cold water and repeat if needed.
If all else fails and your shirt still has wine stains on it after trying everything above (or if there are just too many spots), you may need to throw that piece in the trash! But don't worry—we have some tips with pictures below that show how to remove red wine stains from other items around your home too so read on!
Soak in white wine, if you have some on hand.
If you have a bottle of white wine on hand and don't mind wasting it, the solution is simple: soak the stain in white wine for several hours. The acidity of the liquid will help dissolve the stain, so it's best to use this technique with an absorbent fabric like cotton or linen.
If you’re not keen on throwing away perfectly good alcohol, there are other methods you can try. You can also dab at the stain with an eyedropper filled with white vinegar or apply some lemon juice directly to it before washing as usual. These two ingredients work similarly to white wine—they'll make your clothes smell nice in addition to removing stains! If these options aren't available, however, don't worry; there are plenty more options out there!

The best way to remove wine stains depends on the type of fabric:
For cotton, linen and polyester: Use a stain remover with enzymes. But before you do anything else, blot up as much liquid as possible with paper towels or a clean rag. Then apply the enzyme detergent to remove the rest by hand or in your washing machine.
For silk fabrics: Use an ice cube and lemon juice (or vinegar) immediately after spiling so that they absorb into the cloth without being absorbed by your skin first. If not done quickly enough, this will cause permanent damage to silk’s fiber structure which means it's just gonna be really hard getting out even if you manage somehow because now there is no longer any dye left behind at all so nothing can be removed anymore but it's still gonna show through no matter what unless maybe like some super intense chemical treatment could work? Anyway good luck lol
