Wine stains are notoriously challenging to remove, especially when the wine is of the red variety. Thankfully, wine stains affecting cotton-based fabrics are generally easier to treat than those affecting other types of fabric. Made from cotton, canvas will respond favourably to stain-removing efforts, as long as you use the appropriate supplies and methods.

  1. 1

    Place a dry towel underneath the stained canvas to absorb the wine as you clean.

  2. 2

    Combine 1 tsp dish soap with 1 tsp hydrogen peroxide.

  3. 3

    Moisten a sponge with the soap mixture and gently apply to the stained canvas by dabbing the fabric. Let it set for one minute.

  4. 4

    Blot the wine with a clean sponge until you effectively remove the stain.

  5. 5

    Launder the canvas in cool water.

Tips and warnings

  • Attempt stain removal as quickly as possible. Stains are easier to lift while wet.
