Poll: If I spilled red wine on my carpet, I would:
  • 6.8% - Slurp up as much as I can before it soaks in 73
  • 6.3% - Curse and throw things because what a waste of good wine 68
  • 3.8% - Shrug it off and consider it part of that “lived-in” charm 41
  • 59.7% - Do my best to clean it up as quickly as possible 639
  • 1.2% - Buy new carpet 13
  • 20.4% - Open another bottle of wine 218
  • 1.8% - Other (comments, please) 19

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Pour white wine on the stain or use wine-away.

Pour salt on it a lot of salt. It wicks up the wine and wont leave a stain, works with kool aid too.

I urped in my mouth a little when I read the lick it up option because I automatically thought of the amount of cat hair over every inch of my apartment. Next cat = hairless sphinx.

Spot Shot. Works well if you get it right away.

Edit: However, I never drink wine over carpet. Not in my own house.

What if it matched the carpet color?

I personally would never spill wine on carpet since I don't drink wine. I only check out the wine tab to see other items like vinegars, nuts, chocolates, etc. I think woot needs a FOOD or CANDY page. I'd be all over that thing. ;-)

You can also use Resolve carpet cleaner after the salt to get up any residue. Good stuff.

I would seek counseling for my alcohol abuse, I think that Fred Noe is currently making a product that may just console me.

Fred Noe is Booker Noe's son and if you don't know who these people are then shame on you.

Spill more and make a pattern so it looks like it was supposed to be that way.

All of the wine... first curse.. then slurp it up.. then clean what I can.. then open another bottle of wine, while I convince my husband that this is proof, we need new carpet.. actually we do need new carpet, perhaps, I'll buy a bottle of boones farm, and try out this plan...

Put a tape outline of a body around it and leave to the next home owner.

carpets are a bad idea. tile floors permit red wine orgies without bourgeois concerns of spilling. Toast away, worry not.

Seltzer or Arm and Hammer washing powder mixed with water is a great red wine stain remover. They also work great on blood you know from cutting yourself on the foil or corkscrew when you open the bottle, which is how you spilled the wine in the first place.

I would suggest a game of Twister using the spill and all the earlier stains. Or maybe connect the dots.

Let the dog clean it up . . .

She loves beer, she would probably
love the wine.
