Red Stain Removal
First thing we need to know about a red stain, is it is it natural or synthetic. Red wine is natural, while Kool-Aid, red soda, and pink milk are all synthetic.
How to remove a natural red stain:
It is accomplished by adding oxygen to the natural stain. The first thing to try is club soda, the queen of clean says that if you put club soda quickly enough on a wine stain it will have a good chance of removing it completely. If that doesn't work, there are products on the market like stain magic made for professional carpet cleaners, that will remove natural red stains by adding oxygen to them and breaking open the cell walls, therefore clearing up the stain without actually removing it. The one thing you cannot do is use Oxyclean on nylon or wool carpet because it will not only take the color out of the stain it will remove the color from your carpet. That's why it's best to use a professional carpet cleaner who knows what he's doing to remove these types of stains. Although, there is a product called Wine Away and the queen of clean recommends it.
How to remove a synthetic red stain:
Synthetic stains such as Kool-Aid, red soda, and orange soda are harder to remove. To remove them you would reduce the oxygen in the stain to make it lift out. The way to do this would be to get a product called Red One. Apply to the stain, cover with a wet white terrycloth towel, and apply a clothes iron on high heat for 30 second blasts. This is the safest method. The way to do it with what you already have at home would be to get ammonia, put it on the stain and use the wet white terrycloth towel with a hot iron in 30 second blasts This is a little riskier though as it might remove color from the carpeting. If you do try this method test in an inconspicuous spot prior to using it in the middle of your room.
A professional carpet cleaner, such as Five Star Carpet Cleaning has the right chemicals, training, and experience to remove red stains from your carpeting.
