Throw a thick layer of salt over it
Leave it for some time
Rinse the garment under the tap with cold water
Then throw the garment even more in the washing machine!

This sounds a bit like a myth, and is weird to spill even more wine, but it really works. Pour over the red wine a good dash of white wine. Leave it for a long time, and then rinse your clothes or carpets well. This way your red wine stain disappears.

Gin, milk and beer

Besides white wine you can also use gin, milk and beer. Pour some gin, milk or beer over the red wine stain. Leave it for a long time, then withdraw well and then rinse the stain well. And away is your red wine spot!
Pay attention! Cold milk does not work, only hot boiling milk.

White vinegar

Rub a little vinegar over the red wine stain immediately after the accident has occurred. Wash the garment afterwards on a normal stand and if it is good the wine stain is gone!
