Getting Wine Out of Cow Hide Rugs

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

cowhide rugA cowhide rug can be a great accessory for many homes and buildings. While cowhide rugs are very durable and easy to clean, a wine stain may require some extra work to remove. The following guide provides simple tips and tricks on how to remove win stains from cow skin rugs.

When cleaning a cow hide product, it’s important to understand that some chemicals can damage the hide. It’s important to avoid very acidic or basic cleaning agents. These include bleach, acetone, peroxide, hydrogen peroxide and sodium carboxide. Cleaners with a very high pH level will dissolve the amino acid bonds in the cow hide. If a cleaner with a very low pH is used, it will bleach the cow hide, creating lighter-colored sections.

If wine is spilled on a cow hide rug, it’s important to clean it up as soon as possible. Using a dry paper towel, dab the area where the wine was spilled. Try to avoid pressing the liquid into the cow hide rug: This will make it significantly more challenging to remove any stain.

Once all liquid has been removed from the rug, apply a 5:1 mixture of water and baking soda directly to the stained area. If possible, try to make sure that the baking soda mixture is warm. This will help to lift the stain out of the rug.

Allow the baking soda mixture to sit for at least five minutes. Once five minutes are over, dab up all liquid using a dry paper towel. It’s still important to avoid grinding any liquid deeper into the carpet. Repeat this process until the baking soda mixture remains clear.


Another effective way to get a wine stain out of a cow hide rug is through the use of a steam cleaner.


A steam cleaner uses regular water to clean. By applying steam directly to the site of a stain, it’s possible to “lift” the stain out of the rug. In many cases, steam cleaners are an excellent way to ensure that there isn’t any residue left behind. In addition, most steam cleaners are less likely to cause discoloration.

By cleaning a cow hide rug immediately after a spill, it’s usually possible to reduce the risk of a permanent stain. If a rug has multiple stains on it, it may be a good idea to hire a professional cleaning company. A professional cleaning company has access to specialized tools and cleaning agents that can thoroughly clean a cow hide rug without the risk of damage.

Theater Seating at Home

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

TV Anywhere

Monday, March 8th, 2010

As part of the home, we always try to improve on our home entertainment system. We like going back home to enjoy our favorite shows on our high definition TV. But what if we have to stay somewhere because of work and will not be home on time to watch our favorite show or ball game? There’s this little Slingbox that was developed to help solve this problem. With this device, you are able to control your cable box or HD box with the use of a computer or mobile phone. You are able to record the show or movie or just stream the video on your laptop. Whatever you may be missing could be just some clicks away even when you’re not home.

Entertainment Center

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Every home has a TV. I guess it’s one of the things that we think of putting in the house for our enjoyment. If it’s not the TV that’s always used it’s the radio or sound system which helps us relax while we are on the bed or on the couch. Most of us would also want the whole home theater system that would really make watching movies an enjoyable experience. The only problem now is where to put the system. The TV and home theater system can be put on an entertainment center. Some of the entertainment centers are designed to fit in the home theater system of have separate towers for the speaker system and also act as a shelf for other things like decorations or discs. Others are designed with their own shelves where lots of other things can be stored. Others are like cabinets so that the speaker system is hidden and are opened only when needed. The entertainment center can save space at home and also would improve the looks of the gaming room or bedroom.
