There are plenty of supposedly fail-safe prescriptions for getting wine stains out of your tablecloth or other fabric, but not all of them will reap the pinot-free results you're hoping for. First, don’t soak the stain in water; this will only make it spread out. And don’t scrub the spot with salt or baking soda, as doing so can damage the fibers in the fabric. Instead, pour a little white wine on the red wine stain, and blot with a clean paper towel. Repeat as many times as necessary to get out most of the red wine, and then wash in the hottest water recommended for the fabric.
