How to Remove Wine Stains and Other Delicacies

Many delicacies we enjoy, such as wine, pomegranates, coffee, strawberries, pecans and chocolate can leave behind a stain reminisce of a random tattoo from some lost night in Vegas. You can lay blame on the tannin found in each.

Absorb stains before they set by using the tip of a white paper towel to soak up excess liquid. Never scrub or press with the towel, this will ruin the fabric's texture. If your garment reads DRY CLEAN ONLY do not try to remove the stain yourself - take it promptly to your cleaner.

If your garment is machine washable try the following to remove the stains left behind by the delicacies above:
  1. Absorb excess liquid with a white cloth or paper towel
  2. Soak the garment in cool water
  3. Put detergent and white vinegar on the stain
  4. Wash out thoroughly with water
  5. Air dry
If the stain persists, wash the garment with detergent and appropriate amount of bleach in the hottest water the garment can withstand.
