To remove wine stains from carpet, you first need to blot the spill with paper towels or a clean cloth. Get one tspn of carpet shampoo and mix it with 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide. With a clean sponge, soak it in the mixture and squeeze it half dry, then gently blot the stain. Get additional details from http://www.ehow.com/how_2526_remove-red-wine.html#page=0.
Mr Clean's magic sponge... wet but ring out. Scrub small area to test, may take several trips to faucet to clean sponge out. Definately blot with clean dry white towel to lift out further. Continue until stain is removed. Then clean with colorless soap & water to prevent dirt build up over area cleaned. Once again, blot dry!

white vinegar and warm water, 50/50 solution, then call a professional carpet cleaner, never put bleach or detergents on your carpet. Household detergents are too strong and leave a heavy residue which will set the stain.
best thing I have ever found to work is shaving cream not all the smelly girly kind just your basic cheap shaving cream for men works. or just use whatever kind of shaving cream you have leave it for about half an hour and it should be put! especially if it's wine. Never I repeat NEVER try the bleach effect! it only destroys your carpet!
My Friend just got out a whole bottle of red wine on her white carpet. She used a cup of OXY clean and 2 cups of hot water. She put on carpet with a very wet rag. Let sit for 20 minutes. Then laid a towel on top of the wet spot. And walked on it to soak up. Repeat two more times or as needed. The before and after pictures were amazing. Good Luck!
First, move off the carpet. If you try to remove it on the carpet, the carpet may get stained. Try going to a sink and running cold water on the garment or what ever it is that is stained and then.... Wait, did you mean... NEVER MIND.
If all else fails, a last resort, with a very sharp utility knife, cut a hole or square around the blemish, remove the offensive carpet, cut a new piece, the same size from under a piece of furniture or closet, glue it in, done....the land lord will never know.
I hate when that happens... I've been told to put salt on it right away so it doesn't set in. I would go onto www.servicerunner.com and find a carpet cleaner to come out quickly to get it out. Hope that helps!
