Free For All Friday- Wine Stain No Prob!

For this Free for all Friday I wanted to tell you about the miracle wine remover! Folex is AMAZING carpet cleaner, and only costs about $5 a bottle you can purchase at Home Depot or Bed Bath and Beyond. (I'm sure other places but these are the two I've seen). I am a red wine drinker and having a dog you always know their is going to be some sort of accident.. Last night we were watching TV, had a glass of wine in hand Lilly on my lap well a dog came on the TV and she decided to go straight for it knocking my wine all over the zig Zag rug!!! OH NO you say. Well it was no big deal put the Folex on the spots and it instantly came right out!

It also saved my life last year when we had an ugly sweater party, and lets just say our friends are not the tidiest drinkers!

Red Wine on clothing?? Well don't you worry Ive got the fix all!! I found it after last year I took one of my favorite anthro shirts to the dry cleaners to get out a small spot of red wine. To my dismay they couldn't get it out!! So when I spilled again (I swear I'm not a huge slob hehe) I figured well what do I have to lose, so I used both the folex and oxy clean and it came out like a charm!

NO lie here.. This combo worked on a cream sweater vest that had a huge red wine stain from about a week before. Here are the steps to follow.

Ok So here is the trick to getting red wine out of clothes... First you put on the Folex on and the wine will start to turn a gray color let it sit for about a minute then spray on this oxy clean let it sit for about 5 minutes then throw it in the washer and It will come out like new!!

I know this is totally random but hey it could save your favorite rug or favorite shirt. Happy Friday everyone!!!!

Stain Rx is the best stain remover out there. I have been using it on red wine stains since 1969. Just touch it to red wine, iodine, berries (INCLUDING POMEGRANATE), fruit punch, cranberry juice, and the stains disappear in a second. Stains such as mascara, lipstick, blood, balsamic vinegar, vanilla extract and others come out with a little massaging and rinsing. Soak your diamond, gold and platinum jewelry in it for 20 minutes to overnight, you won’t believe it!
By the way, the University of California – Davis did a study on red wine stain removal and the #1, ready to use winner was Stain Rx (a.k.a. Erado-Sol). It killed Wine Away which is available everywhere. Go to to see what else it does.
As far as carpeting and upholstery:
I use Stain Rx on carpeting and upholstery all the time and have the method down.
First, I vacuum the entire carpet or piece of upholstery being treated. Then I clean the entire carpet or upholstery with my Hoover Steam-Vac, a carpet shampooer is at least as good, plus, I ONLY use warm water - no detergent at all. The Hoover sprays in water and vacuums it out. For the carpet I use the Steam-Vac and on upholstery I use the Steam-Vac attachments to do this. While the carpet or upholstery is still wet from this step, do the following;
Depending on the size of the stain, put a “dot” of Stain Rx on your fingertip and rub out one stain at a time. After treating a stain, remove all of the soapy residue from that area using the instructions below and go on to the next stain.
HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART: You have to remove all of the soapy residue using the attachments from the Steam-Vac, carpet shampooer or a wet/dry shop vacuum. RINSE OUT ALL OF THE SOAPY RESIDUE USING WATER AND THE VACUUM. If you leave Stain Rx in the area, dust will stick forming a gray spot in a few weeks. If this happens, just add water and remove all of the soapy residue.
Let dry and marvel at the job you did.
