Christmas is a time for hosting home get-togethers for family and friends. As the mulled wine flows and your guests become increasingly merry, drinks will inevitably be spilled on your pristine carpet. Arming yourself with the kit and knowledge to tackle mulled wine spills will prevent carpet catastrophes over Christmas.
What to do when a spill occurs
Everyone swears by their own cleaning hacks, but the most important asset in the event of a mulled wine spill is speed. The sooner you tackle the stain, the easier it will be to remove. Having said that, it’s crucial not to go in all guns blazing scrubbing at the floor! Rubbing will set the stain and make it virtually impossible for you to remove. Here’s what to do instead:
- Blot with a clean, damp cotton cloth to soak up excess liquid
- Dab from the edges inwards to avoid spreading the stain
- Sparkling water can help lift the stain, but use it sparingly
- Diluted white vinegar is another useful cleaning agent
- Don’t pour white wine on the stain – that would be a waste!
What to do if you find a dried-in stain
