    I have just spilled a bit of port on to my Dad's new carpet, we need urgent help and advise to quickly remove this stain.

    I could be breaking the rules by making this thread, but please help me this very urgent!!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. we dabbed hot water, it's coming off, but it could only go so far.

    Check what cleaning type things you have in the house; you must have an effective carpet cleaner or Oxy or Vanish or something.

    We have something called, Stain Devils, it says it removes Red Wine, but overleaf it says, DO N0T USE ON CARPETS.

    So we're screwed, we have dabbed hot water though, darn port...

    Don't use hot water, that just sets the stain. Use cold, and a lot of scrubbing. Try putting on bicarb of soda (it's a cooking thing) if you have any

    Don't use hot water - it's generally safest to use cold water on stains as hot water can 'set' the stain and make it almost impossible to get out. Some people suggest putting salt on red wine / port stains as that can get it out, but try it on an inconspicuous bit of carpet first as it could damage it. Failing that I've used 1001 stain remover on a blackcurrant stain on carpet and it worked a treat - it was an old stain too and it still came out.
