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?

The best way to get red wine out of the carpet is to have red carpet.

Salt lots of salt. It wicks the wine up, then when the salt dries vacuum the salt up. It works for kool aid too, but good luck keeping the child out of the salt pile.

+1 for salt. Use a whole box, get it on there as soon as possible. Beige carpet, kids, red drinks, who would have thought that was a bad idea? Sounds like jnelson203 learned the same way we did that the salt fix came straight from on high.

My dogs. They love when we spill wine on the floor.

If only I could figure out how to get them to clean the whole floor...

I saw this done for the first time at a party not long ago. I was shocked at how well it worked!

All these "lick the carpet" comments are making me gag... Though maybe most of you keep your carpets immaculately clean?
