If you don't have a Vanish stain removal product to hand then don't worry. We're still able to provide some handy hints on removing stains. Vanish will help you remove the stains even once they have dried-in.
- Put some salt on the stain as quickly as possible to soak up the red wine. Dab this with a dry cloth. Be careful not to spread the stain round more.
- Remember to try and dab the stain inwards to prevent spreading it, and don't try to rub the red wine stain out with the cloth or you will smear the stain and make it larger.
- Blot the area you have spilled the red wine again with a new paper towel dampened with water. Repeat step 2 if necessary.

What Causes Red Wine Stains?
The pigment in wine; an Anthocyanin, is from the skins of the grapes. These anthocyanins are the cause of red wine stains, as they easily attach themselves to any fibrous items. Vanish Oxi Action Powder is formulated to attack these Anthocyanins directly.
