Scrape off excess dry wine residue using a dull knife. Remove as much wine residue as possible.
Pour 1 tbsp. of non-bleach hand dish soap into a bowl. Stir 2 cups of cold water into the soap.
Dampen a cloth (preferably white) in the solution. Tamp the remaining dried wine stain with the detergent solution until the red blotch dissolves. Fold the cloth regularly to avoid producing additional wine stains.
Moisten another cloth with cool water. Tamp the previously wine-stained upholstery to flush out the detergent.
Blot the upholstery dry using a towel.
