How to Remove Red Wine Stains … With More Wine

Julie Edelmann, also known as the Accidental Housewife, shows us a surprising secret for removing red wine stains from a white blouse.


You accidentally spilled red wine on something white…now what? Grab a bottle of white and get to work!

In the video above, "Accidental Housewife" Julie Edelman shows us how:

  • Place a clean cloth under the stained garment. Do this as quickly as possible to prevent the stain from spreading.  
  • Blot stain with clean cloth or paper towel. You can also use cool water. Never rub.  
  • Rub stain with salt. This will help to lift it. Let sit for a while.  
  • Pour white wine over stain. You will begin to see the stain lighten. Leave on for 5-10 mintues and dab with clean towel.  
  • Launder.
