Whether it’s on your clothes or the carpet, being able to remove either of these items is definitely a modern survival skill (especially if you’re renting, or you borrow clothes).
All you need:
- Hydrogen Peroxide (wonderful household item for a survivalist!)
- Soap. I have had success with dish soap, castile soap, it doesn’t really matter.
- Warm water if your spill is on carpet.
- A clean rag or cotton squares.
I typically use a rag on carpet, and cotton squares on clothing. Using equal parts, dab the spill (you want to remove it gently, not spread it in and around!)
Some spills might require a round 2. You want to address the spill as soon as possible and before you wash the item of clothing. I once had a wine spill in an apartment that took three weeks to remove; patience is a virtue.
It works every time!
Do you know any other tricks to clean up blood and red wine?
