How to Remove Red Wine from Carpet


Wine Spot Removal

Wine spilled on carpet may come in different colors. White wine may show up as a tinge of brown on the carpet, whereas red wine is the most visible and can look red/black on carpet fiber. The presence of tannin dyes makes this a difficult spot to remove.


Method 1

  1. Apply Matrix Release undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
  2. Apply Matrix Target Tannin Stain Remover undiluted. Tamp and blot with spotting brush and spotting towel.
  3. Apply Matrix Advanced Stain Remover mixed in equal parts of solutions A & B.
  4. Cover with a damp towel and apply an iron set at the lowest heat setting. Check the towel every 10-15 seconds for color transfer.


Method 2

  1. Remove all loose soil from the area to be cleaned. Spray generously about 12 inches from the stained area.
  2. DO NOT SCRUB OR BLOT THE TREATED STAIN. Just spray and walk away.
  3. Allow area to dry. PROXI will gradually break down and remove the stain and remain active up to 3 days. Additional treatments of PROXI may be necessary in cases of severe staining.
  4. On deep pile carpets, work PROXI into the pile lightly with a clean rag or light brush. Do not scrub or blot.
