Apply the cleaning solutions to an inconspicuous bit of carpet, place a white cloth over the wine spill, and press your hand or foot firmly on it. Lift it up when the cloth is saturated. Find a dry spot on the cloth and blot the stain again. Continue this process until no more liquid comes up.Mix 1 tbsp. of hand dishwashing liquid with 1 tbsp. of vinegar and 2 cups of warm water. Apply a small amount of the mixture to the stain. Blot with a new clean cloth, and reapply the mixture. Sponge the carpet with clean water. Mix 1/8 cup of oxygenated stain remover with 2 cups of warm water.
