Clean red wine off a white wall

Q: Party foul! My dinner guest just spilled red wine on my white wall. How can I keep the stain from setting?

A: We tried out this cleaning tip for red wine stains — and it worked! In a glass or plastic bowl, mix together two parts hydrogen peroxide with one part dish detergent (the stuff you put in the machine, not dish soap that you use for hand-washing). Use a light-colored cloth to dab the mixture onto the stain. Don’t try to scrub the stain. Works best on fresh spills, of course.

Be amazed!
