Stain Rx is the best stain remover out there.
I have been using it on red wine stains since 1969.
Just touch it to red wine,
berries (INCLUDING POMEGRANATE),
and the stains disappear in a second.
Stains such as mascara,
vanilla extract and others come out with a little massaging and rinsing.
Soak your diamond,
gold and platinum jewelry in it for 20 minutes to overnight,
you won`t believe it!
By the way,
the University of California –
Davis did a study on red wine stain removal and the #1,
ready to use winner was Stain Rx (a.k.a.
It killed Wine Away which is available everywhere.

to see what else it does.
As far as carpeting and upholstery:
I use Stain Rx on carpeting and upholstery all the time and have the method down.
I vacuum the entire carpet or piece of upholstery being treated.
Then I clean the entire carpet or upholstery with my Hoover Steam-Vac,
a carpet shampooer is at least as good,
I ONLY use warm water - no detergent at all.
The Hoover sprays in water and vacuums it out.
For the carpet I use the Steam-Vac and on upholstery I use the Steam-Vac attachments to do this.
While the carpet or upholstery is still wet from this step,
do the following;
Depending on the size of the stain,
put a ȁCdotȁD of Stain Rx on your fingertip and rub out one stain at a time.
After treating a stain,
remove all the soapy residue from that area using the instructions below and go on to the next stain.
HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART:
You have to remove all the soapy residue using the attachments from the Steam-Vac,
carpet shampooer or a wet/dry shop vacuum.
RINSE OUT ALL OF THE SOAPY RESIDUE USING WATER AND THE VACUUM.
If you leave Stain Rx in the area,
dust will stick forming a gray spot in a few weeks.
If this happens,
just add water and remove all of the soapy residue.
Let dry and marvel at the job you did.
