How To Get A Red Wine Stain Out Of Upholstery:

Step 1:  If the stain has just happened, blot up as much of the red wine as possible from the upholstery, being careful not to spread the stain any further.
Step 2:  Use some white wine ( if available) to blot the red wine stain with a clean cloth, or sprinkle with salt or baking/bicarbonate soda.  Vacuum-up the salt/baking soda when as much of the wine has been absorbed.
Step 3:   Mix a solution of two cups of water and one tablespoon washing up liquid. Next, blot at the stain until the liquid is absorbed.
Step 4:  Repeat steps 3 & 4 until the stains are removed from the upholstery.
Step 5:   Now that the stain is removed you should use some cold water and a clean cloth and sponge the area to remove the cleaning solution, and then blot dry.

Helpful Hint: Be sure to get the upholstery only as wet as is necessary to remove the stain.

An alternative solution is to try some hydrogen peroxide with an equal amount of washing-up liquid or household cleaner that has an oxidizing effect, e.g. ‘Vanish Gold Oxi-Action’.
