Removing Red Wine Stains In a Emergency: All to often these stains happen while your enjoying an evening out. But don't worry, it's fairly simple to treat the stain before it sets in. Red wine is your favorite but order a glass of white wine or maybe treat yourself (and your shirt) to a glass of champagne and chase it with a splash of club soda. ... Grab your napkin and put it under the stained area. Pour the white wine or the champagne over the red wine stain. This should remove the stain completely but if there is any stain remaining ... Use the club soda with a clean section of napkin and dab at the stain until it's gone. Use another clean napkin to squeeze any remaining liquids from your clothing and use the hand dryer to help iron out the wrinkles. When you get home launder as usual.
