how to remove a red wine stain


House Cleaning Tips

  So Uncle Harry sloshed some red wine while extravagantly recounting his fishing story.

Don’t worry!  Keep a bottle of cheap white wine in the fridge for such occasions.  Soak the red wine spill and watch.  Like magic the stain should bubble and turn pick.  Let sit for 10 minutes and blot dry.



Included in house cleaning chores we know that the kitchen is one of the highest priority rooms to clean.

Often times the microwave is the most used appliance and can get pretty gruesome.

  Don’t worry!  Dried on gunk is easily removed by putting a small bowl of vinegar inside and set your microwave on high for 3 minutes.  Goo is loosened and easily wiped away.

If you’re not a fan of the smell of vinegar lemon juice can be used instead.

  Putting a whole lemon in your microwave will give the same result, just remember to pierce the lemon  a few times first so it doesn’t explode.

That WOULD be a mess!


Do you like lemon in your tea?  Well you can also use that lemon to remove tea stains.

  That’s right!  Halve a lemon and gently rub over the stained area.  Sprinkle some salt and gently rub the fabric together.  Let sit for 10 minutes then wash.


Here’s one for those with little kiddies or very messy men.

  Greasy fingerprints on walls or wallpaper?  An easy fix for this job without tainting the paint is this.

Simply wipe down the wall (paper) with a slice of white bread.  The bread acts like a sponge and soaks up the grease.

  Well, there’s one good reason to reach for the wonder bread!


Shaving cream seems to be a constant in men’s bathrooms these days.

  Can’t see in the mirror before putting blade to face?  No problem! Slather some of that shaving cream on the mirror.  Wipe off and Voila!

  Cleans like a dream and defogs mirrors and glass (shower doors).

Bonus is you don’t have to stick bits of toilet paper on your face.


One for the ladies.  We’ve all spilled nail polish at one time or another.

  I still have the stain on my coffee table when I thought nail polish REMOVER was the way to get it off.


   HAIRSPRAY removes nail polish from virtually every surface there is.  Just spray, let sit for 20 minutes, and wipe away.

  While we’re talking about hairspray and other spray-on hair products let me address this one…it’s great!

When you use aerosol products and the spray attaches itself to mirrors or shower doors there is only one sure and easy way to get the glue-like substance off.  Lemon-scented(the bonus) cleaning wipes.

  The cleaner cuts the tacky substance and wipes clean as a whistle…Just toss the cloth.

There are few solutions to removing blood stains as effective as this tidbit.

  Pour a little hydrogen peroxide on the evidence…er spot.  Do NOT rub in.

The stain will bubble, turn pink, and disappear faster than you can say CSI.
