Soak up the puddle of spilled red wine with a dry cloth or paper towels.
Mix 1 cup of plain tap water with ½ cup of hydrogen peroxide. Add a few drops of liquid dish-washing detergent.
Pour into a spray bottle, and shake well.
Spray the solution directly onto the red wine stain. The hydrogen peroxide solution bleaches out the color of the wine.
Once the stain is clear, use a shampoo or wet-vac machine to remove the peroxide from your carpet or upholstery. Blot the area with a dry towel, and then repeat the wash-and-blot process two more times.
If the red wine has spilled on your clothing, then wash it immediately.
