This trick showing How To Clean Carpet Stains Quickly will remove most stains right in minutes with one simple ingredient! Bonus...it even works on red wine stains!
Carpet stains are the worst, but they don't have to be. This trick to remove stains is one that I've read about for quite some time, but didn't really believe. Boy, was I wrong! The first time I figured out that this trick worked was when a friend of mine called me to help her with a set in stain in her daughter's bedroom carpet. I did a little research and told her to try shaving cream first. I think she thought I had lost my mind, but a few minutes later, she called to tell me that it had gotten the stain out...I think we were both shocked. Fast forward to about a year later when I dropped a glass of red wine on my living room rug, and I needed to test this method out again. Here is how it went down...

How to Remove Red Wine from Carpet
Start by blotting as much as the liquid as possible up using paper towels or a cloth. Do not rub the stain, or you could make it spread more. Just blot it. If your stain is already dried and set in, simply skip this step.
Next, grab some inexpensive foaming shaving cream. Don't use the gel shaving cream for this.
Dispense shaving cream on the stain.
Then use your fingers to rub it into the stain.
Use a dish cloth to rub it around and absorb the stain.
Use another dish cloth to wipe away any excess shaving cream. No rinsing needed!
