We all like to enjoy a glass of wine once in a while. In fact, sometimes a glass or two can turn into three or four.

Of course, the more wine we drink, the more likely we are to have a little accident. We all know how stubborn wine stains can be.

The truth is, spills can even happen when we’re stone-cold sober. Red wine always has a way of ending up the last place it should be — like  our clothes.

Everyone has a different wine stain removal method, but not all of them are equally effective. To find the best way to save your clothes from wine stains, we tested 10 different solutions.

Our options: cat litter, salt, baby powder, club soda, vodka, milk, baking soda and white wine, hydrogen peroxide and dish soap, a stain-remover pen, and hot water. Admittedly, some of these may sound a little outlandish, but each technique has its own supporting theory as to why it can work.

For instance, the dry materials like cat litter, salt, and baby powder possess properties that will absorb and lift the stain. A higher proof alcohol like vodka could potentially dissolve the red pigment from the wine.

Is plain old hot water enough to remove a stain? And is there anything that can beat out a stain-remover pen?
