Stain Buster — Alcoholic Beverages

Alcohol

Fabric

Sponge the stain with cool water or soak for about 30 minutes in a basin of cool water. Pretreat with a prewash stain remover and wash as usual, adding bleach to the wash if safe for the fabric.

 

Upholstery

Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar with 2/3 cup of surgical spirit. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the vinegar/alcohol solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears.

OR

Mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid with two cups of cool water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears. Sponge with cold water and blot dry to remove the detergent solution.

 

Carpet

Using clean white paper towels or cloths, blot up as much of the spilled drink as possible. Use plain water or mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid and one tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with a small amount of plain water or detergent/vinegar solution. Apply a little bit at a time, blotting frequently with a dry cloth until the stain disappears. If using a detergent/vinegar solution, sponge with cold water and blot dry to remove the solution.
