Removing a Fresh Stain

Wet stains are much easier to remove.

You will need:

White wine

Baking Powder

Clean Cloths

1. Begin by blotting (don’t scrub!) the stain with a clean cloth to remove as much of the stain as possible.

2. Then add some white wine to a different clean cloth and continue blotting the stain.

3. Make a thick paste of baking powder and water and spread a layer over the remaining stain – Leave for 5 mins.

4. Simply hoover up the baking powder and the stain will have completely disappeared!
