The Wine Aftermath

If you remember this, then you might be wondering how we fared. After Mr. Palindrome had wiped the wine off his face and we surveyed the damage, I made quick work of sprinkling baking soda over all of the fabric surfaces and rug.

We let the baking soda sit for around 24 hours.

Then we vacuumed up and I was super pleased.  That good ole Dear Heloise trick was just the ticket to saving our furniture. The only reason we were able to laugh about it prior to the vacuum and seeing the evidence was because we paid the extra insurance when we bought the couch for just such reasons!

While the couch and rug survived unscathed, Oliver's white coat, which I did not pour baking soda on, left a few spots.

His nose and forehead had small reminders of his leap until he finally was able to groom them out.

Have you used baking soda successfully for wine clean ups before?


  1. I've never heard of that trick, but it's good to know! I'm glad it worked!!

  2. That trick looks great! Thanks for taking the time to post this. And that cat is really cute!
