Step 4 - Apply half a capful our Tough Love Stain Remover directly to the stain, massage in gently with your fingers or our Natural Sea Sponge, and then leave to soak in warm water for one hour. If the stain has faded but not totally disappeared, then repeat.
Step 5 - Once you're sure any red wine stains are gone, you can wash the garment as normal. Top tip: you can add a small amount of stain remover to your machine wash load to brighten light coloured garments too.
Step 6 - As aforementioned, it's best not to use a tumble drier after an item is stained, just in case there is any trace of the stain left. Instead, air dry the item, preferably in natural sunlight, as the sun's UV rays will provide a natural bleaching effect.
So don't worry, your favourite white dress isn't ruined after you've had one glass of wine too many - now you've got the tips you need to remove any red wine stains before you can even say 'whoops!'
