How to get wine out of comforter quilt from home

Here are my nine favorite ways to easily remove wine out of your extra large king quilts without leaving long lasting stains. Of course, for better results, you should act fast and treat the stain as soon as it appears.

It is much more difficult to remove old dried wine stains after days, weeks. And it is sometimes impossible to get rid of red wine stains after years.

With soapy water

If the wine has just been spilled, blot it with a clean cloth and then immediately rub it with a sponge soaked in soapy water or soda water. You should be able to remove the wine stain.

With cornstarch

You can also use cornstarch, talcum powder, terre de Sommières (a very special product from France) or even flour. When the wine stain is dry, you will have to brush the fabric.

With hot milk

Let the wine stain dry, then gently dab it with a cloth soaked in hot milk for about 1 hour or more if the wine is resistant. Then, just rinse. This technique is very effective for carpets or rugs.

With cold water

Wash stained clothes in cold water or in a washing machine at 30 degrees (not higher so as not to cook the stain).

With vinegar

Vinegar can also be effective in cleaning a red wine stain.

With soda water

For a stain that is a few days old on a pair of cream pants, 55% linen and 45% cotton: soak the stain in a soda drink (such as Perrier), then add cleaning gel (not soap because it turns blue) to bleach, you will have an impeccable result (cold wash of course).

With baking soda

Apply a paste of baking soda and lemon to the soiled area for 1 hour before rinsing.

With white vinegar and alcohol

Mix half a glass of water with a quarter glass of white vinegar and another quarter glass of household alcohol. Apply the concocted mixture to the wine stain by gently tapping with a damp cloth.

With makeup lotion cleanser

Soak a cotton ball in makeup remover lotion for face. Add a few drops of ammonia to the cotton ball (or drops of water and alcohol, if the stain is fresh). Dab the cotton ball on the marked area. Remember to air out the room if you use ammonia so you don’t inhale its fumes.
