Red wine is one of the most difficult stains to remove from clothing. Immediately after spilling red wine, pour club soda or white wine on the affected area and soak up. Then wash in cold water and ammonia. You can also try running bowling hot water through the fabric over a bowl or basin.
It is best to allow garment to drip dry after each attempt of stain removal. Spots that may not be visible when wet can show up and be permanently set by the heat of a dryer.
