Getting Rid Of Red Wine Stains On Your Dress

Wondering how you could lift that splash of Cabernet from your fave dress?
Here are tips that help:

First, be sure that the fabric won't run, then press a wet cotton ball on an inconspicuous spot, then lift up. If any color bleeds on the cotton ball, stop and take it to the dry cleaner.

On a clean white towel, place the garment facedown, then blot up as much of the wine as possible using a cotton swab to press the garment into the towel from the reverse side.

Try by soaking the cotton ball in a white vinegar and dab the stain from the back of the garment. Move the garment into a cleaner spot on the towel and keep tamping until no red comes out.

Repeat the entire steps with a half teaspoon of dish soap which is diluted in a cup of water.

Take note; - if the garment is labeled "dry clean only", take it right away to a professional dry cleaner. If not, wash it with a dye and fragrance-free detergent with enzymes (such as Seventh Generation Free & Clear).
