Blot until the solvent is absorbed.

If the stain is persistent repeat until stain is gone.


Cranberry Sauce stain removal:

Rinse stain with cool water.

Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of liquid laundry detergent with one quart of cool water. Let stain soak in solution for about 15 minutes.

Once you take it out of the solution rinse with cool water again.

If the stain remains, sponge the stain with rubbing alcohol and rinse thoroughly.


Red Wine stain removal:

Blot, don’t rub. Rubbing with cause you to actually set the stan. Dab at the stain with a damp, white cotton cloth to absorb any excess wine.

Pull the fabric tight. Slide a bowl under the fabric, centering the stain over the bowl. A rubber band may be helpful to keep the fabric in place.

Sprinkle salt and let it stand for about 5 minutes.

Slowly pour boiling water directly onto the stain.

Lastly Machine-wash on the hottest water setting but, only machine-wash if the stain is completely removed. Otherwise, the high heat inside the washer will cause the stain to set.
