How To: Remove Red Wine from Rugs & Carpets

 

Red wine holds anthocyanin that will cling to any fiber, especially to wool and silk fibers. Well, if you are one of the many who have already spilled it and just searched for how to remove it, you’ve landed in the right place! The main chemical used to remove red wine spills is Hydrogen Peroxide, still, it just can’t be spilled all over the carpet for cleaning.

Read instructions carefully before applying it on the rug! 

The first and foremost caution is to single out the damaged section of the rug, now ensure the stain is not spreading to other areas. Single out the scar and get to treating right away! The quicker you act on it, the lesser the damage can possibly endure. Now that the red wine stain is singled out and ready or treatment, keep a colorless white napkin to the side to remove the blot while spraying the Hydrogen Peroxide. Do not use colored cloth or napkins as they may react with the chemical and leave more stains instead!! Do NOT scrub the spilled wine, it may soak to the base of the rug and becomes irremovable forever! All you need to do is control the liquid with slow drops and apply cloth, do this repeatedly until the stain fades away or disappears. The trick is to spill a few drops on a white napkin and soak it to the affected area. This process is not intended to be quick! The slower and more precise action is favored over the quick and hasty.

CAUTION:

NEVER use a bleaching chemical for cleaning a red wine spot on rugs, the bleaching agent only worsens the situation, sometimes even widening the spot radius and/or making two spots. If your carpet is colored, it may eradicate the original rug’s color permanently. Also, avoid using detergents meant for other purposes, it sticks to the carpet hairs and attracts dust from surrounding fibers which will end up looking even uglier than before; Even after the wine spot is possibly removed!

5 Rug Cleaning Tips for Removing Dust and Stains

Things may get messy sometimes; especially if there are kids in the house, there’s ten times more chance that your expensive rug will get a stain or dust at least. Even if there are no kids in the house, you still couldn’t rule out the chance of getting it stained by yourself. Spills and stains are inevitable, if you have a floor covering in the room, you must learn how to react quickly to stains before it absorbs into the fibers.

Here are Five valued tips and tricks on how to remove spills and stains from any rug or carpet without damaging it.

  • The first rule is to quickly react to it. Grab your stain cleaning solution and cold water bucket and get to work! Never use warm or hot water along with the cleaner as it may damage the fiber and results in bleaching your rug instantly. 
  • Always use a small amount of water along with the cleaning solution. The more liquid you pour onto it, it is likely to spread to a larger diameter only making it more laborious to dry and clean when the stain is removed. 
  • Do NOT rub the solution at all, it may do irreparable damage to the fiber, decreases fiber density, and softness. Instead, use a smaller garment brush for rugs and brush softly with the grain to remove a stain. Use a soft/medium toothbrush if you do not have a garment brush available. 
  • When the stain(s) are removed, use a hair dryer to dehydrate the stained area. Never expose it to the sun as it may bleach the whole rug. 
  • DIY Cleaning Solution! Some of the best cleaning solutions can be prepared using household products to safely clean your rugs: Vinegar is the best solution to remove stains when mixed with the same amount of water, or mix a small amount of Ammonia with cold water to remove any stain from rugs.

How Can a Handmade Rug Impact Interior Design?

When people think of interior design they usually start thinking about the walls and what color it should be painted. Then they move on to the furniture and decide which pieces would accentuate the room best. Very often people don’t take into consideration the role of the floors and the carpets. They are also part of the décor and play integral parts in creating the best look for the home. Whilst it is difficult to redo the floors when you are renovating, it is fairly easy to make use of carpets. Here are a few ways in which interior design and rugs play significant roles in decorating a room. 

Visual pathways

Think of your hallway at home. Is it a very exciting look? Probably not. Most hallways look dead and empty because it is not really a room. This is the mistake a lot of people make. They make possible the transition from one room to the next and its décor must flow with the rest of the house. Carpets are a great way to help with the ambience in a hallway. Choose the right carpet in order to attract attention to the hallway as well as its surrounding rooms. 

Create areas in open plan spaces

Many modern developments are now being built with open plan kitchens, dining rooms, and living rooms. Whilst this is a trend that many young homeowners are chasing, it does become difficult to create separate styles for each part of the room. A carpet is a great way to create an enclosed area where you can let one style become dominant. Anchor your furniture by placing it on the carpet so that it does not get lost in the vast open room. 

Lighten up dark spaces

Unfortunately there isn’t much you can do about a dark space in your house where very little natural light comes in. A lighter carpet will, of course, break a bit of the dark and brighten it up. It prevents the shadows that are being formed from creating a flat and boring look. It also helps to lift the darker design scheme. 

There is a significant connection between rugs and interior design; one can absolutely not function properly without the other.
