How to Get Red Wine Out of a Microfiber Couch
A bottle of red wine may be the perfect complement to a romantic evening, but one spilled glass of red wine on your couch will ruin the mood quickly. Microfiber couches are stain resistant, but if the red wine isn't removed promptly, it can leave a stain.
Even if you are not able to soak up the wine in time, most of the stain will disappear when you clean the fabric thoroughly with soap and water.
Use a lint-free towel to blot up as much of the red wine as possible when the spill occurs. If you do not do this, the stain will become more difficult to remove later.
Pour salt on the spill to absorb more of the wine. Let the salt rest on the stain while you prepare a mixture of 1 tablespoon laundry soap in a bowl of hot water. Brush or vacuum the salt off the stain.
Soak a towel in the soapy water, and squeeze out excess water. Dab the red wine with the towel. Rinse the towel as necessary, and repeat until the towel stops lifting the red wine.
Things You Will Need
- Lint-free towel
- Laundry detergent
Do not use bleach or acetone cleaners on microfiber. These products may damage the fabric.
