The first thing you should do when red wine (or anything red) hits your carpet or upholstery is to absorb as much as you can with a towel. Stand on the towel, do not rub the red stain. Then rinse with cool water, absorb the moisture and call a professional. The biggest mistake you can make is trying to remove the stain yourself with home-made remedies. This often results in permanently setting the stain and sometimes making it impossible for a professional to remove the stain entirely.
Red stains can be difficult to remove because they actually add dye to the carpet fiber. It is not a matter of just removing a substance that is on the carpet fiber. It requires changing the molecular structure of the dye in the carpet fiber. Chem-Dry offers a product called Red Alert that can frequently get red stains out of the carpet and upholstery. While this product works very well, it is still best when a red stain hits your carpet or upholstery, to absorb as much as you can, treat with cool water and call a Chem-Dry professional to remove the dyes in your carpet or upholstery. A "fresh" red stain is much easier to remove when treated properly and quickly.
