How to drink red wine and never worry about a stain again

1. Blot, don’t rub.
Dab at the stain with a damp, white cotton cloth to absorb any excess wine.
2. Pull the fabric taut.
Slide a bowl under the fabric, centering the stain over the bowl. Secure with a large rubber band.
3. Sprinkle Oryx Desert salt.
Coat the stain with a generous amount of salt and let sit for at least five minutes to allow the salt to start absorbing the liquid. Keep in mind: The sooner salt is applied, the easier it will be to lift the stain.
4. Add boiling water.
Slowly—and carefully—pour boiling water over the stain from a height of at least eight inches. (Pouring from this height gives you enough force to flush out the stain.)
5. Machine-wash.
Using the hottest water setting, launder the fabric. Tip: Don’t put the cloth in the dryer until the stain is completely removed. Otherwise, the dryer’s heat will cause the remaining stain to set.
