I have a similar question. How do you get blood out of a mattress? I mean a lot of blood -- not just a little of it. Also, can you paint over blood or will you need to use primer first?

I've had good luck with Clorox's Oxy-Magic in the spray bottle. My carpet is very light colored as is my furniture, and it's taken out red wine, popsicle stains, all different things. You would want to try it on an area first to make sure it didn't lighten your carpet. Good luck!

I use OxiClean for everything. I haven't tried it with wine, but I don't think I've had it not work on anything I've tried it on. I love the stuff.

@cengland0: Not sure about the mattress but what material are you painting? Wood? Metal? Linoleum? Regardless of the material you're going to need to start off with bleach. Lots of bleach.

@lmensor: Thanks! I'll try the Oxy-Magic if you've had previous luck with it. @kmeltzer: I didn't realize that Oxiclean did anything other than laundry stains. I'm going to have to pick some of that up, too!

Unleaded and a match works well too.

I always use Blue Magic - I have not run into anything that it can't get out!

Another vote for Blue Magic.

@kmeltzer: YEP, same here. I have 2 little stain monsters living in my house and I can almost always get stuff up with Oxy-Clean on the spot and going over it over and over with my carpet steam cleaner.

Oxyclean works great for wine stains. Peroxide works for blood stains.

@discountlingeriedeals @thefenst:
I see three styles of Blue Magic carpet cleaners. The Foaming Carpet Cleaner, The spray Carpet Stain & Spot Lifter and a 22 oz (aerosol) of the same. Which do you prefer, they each say that they lift tough stains. Thanks again!

Wine Away works well. The sooner you can get to the stain the better, but it does help with more than just wine stains. Oxyclean would also work, but I'd use both to make sure. I actually used Wine Away to get cherry flavored Nyquil out of my carpet.

@mrsbeny: I always use the foam but would think that the others would work just as well. I can say that the foam does get a little messy at times!

edit: You can get it at Walmart if there is one close to you. This is the link of the one I get:

(hope the link works for you) If not, the actual title is: Blue Magic Carpet Stain & Spot Lifter, 22 oz

I echo the comments about oxyclean. I haven't used it on wine, but I have gotten blueberries out of carpet with it!

Scissors will get that right out.

I've used Oxyclean on red wine stains. It works incredibly well, provided it hasn't been set with something else. Then it will probably work, it will just take a bit longer. I always keep some Oxyclean around the house. Blot the wine, then use plain water to get out the as much of the rest. (use a carpet cleaner to suck up the water). Oxyclean will take out the remaining very well. Just be sure to use lots of water to get all of the remaining Oxyclean out of the carpet.

You can use a baking-soda paste (Baking soda/water) to remove it. But basically it's going to be a lot of water, a lot of blotting, and a lot of baking soda and/or oxyclean.

Just be careful whatever you're using doesn't bleach a white stripe down the carpet.

I wish I had carpet, but I have heard that vinegar is a very good cleaner; I have never tried it. My dirt floors are easy to clean here in Arkansas (if you don't mind the dust).

I ended up using the Oxy Clean as some of the others weren't available at our local grocer. It took it right out, thanks everyone for your help and suggestions!

next time you spill red wine on a stainable surface, sponge up the excess wine, and throw salt on the stain right away. The salt soaks up the rest of the wine you can't get and keeps it from staining in. For the original poster, what everyone else already posted sounds like a good idea.

As a follow up for future answer browsers, I ran out of the stuff I normally use and was forced into something else. To my surprise, Woolite Oxy works great to for older stains! I left it on longer than the 5 minutes they say on the can(about 10 minutes because they were very old, but newly found!).
