The holidays are a time to eat, drink and be merry. But if you, a friend or family member get too merry, disaster could be in the air.

Red wine is one of the toughest stains to get out of fabrics, but that doesn’t mean that the task is impossible. It’s of course easier to remove a stain that’s fresh, but Eric Stromer of GMC Trade Secrets shows us that even dried red wine stains are possible to remove. Take a look at 3 ways to conquer red wine stains using club soda, dish soap, hydrogen peroxide, white wine, and salt:

  1. Mix one teaspoon of dish soap with one cup of hydrogen peroxide. Use a clean sponge to drizzle the mixture onto the stain. Then just let it penetrate and rinse with cold water.
  2. Put club soda in a measuring cup, then soak the piece of fabric or clothing in the solution. Remove once the fabric has absorbed the mixture and cover the stained area with salt. Leave this overnight and brush the salt off in the morning.
  3. Pour white wine over the affected area and let it soak for a few minutes. Rinse with cold water.

After trying any of these methods, wash the fabric as usual and you should be good to go!
