Why: Chandler saw a guy try it, but didn't see the aftermath, and I had full-on doubt that it worked. Then I just got an article to edit about removing wine stains, and it says, "Pour White Wine on a Red Wine Stain."
Answer: Kinda! Through neutralization. It is a good first step:
When red wine is spilled onto your carpet or clothes, white wine can be your true companion. White wine will neutralize red wine and will make it easier to lift the color off of your carpet or clothing. Simply pour white wine over the stained area and very gently blot the liquid up with a thick towel (be very careful not to rub as this will force the stain into the carpet or clothing fibers).Source: Wine.about.com
Once you have the majority of the spill blotted up, take your favorite carpet shampoo or clothing stain remover, whichever the case may be, and clean as you would if the wine stain were a bit of dirt on the carpet or clothing.
