Stuff We Love: Not Crying Over Spilled Wine

A must-have stocking stuffer
By Lynda Wheatley | Dec. 11, 2021

In northern Michigan, we devote a lot of time to drinking wine. It only seems fair that we then share with you one of the best fixes for removing red wine stains we’ve come across. The aptly named Chateau Spill Red Wine Stain Remover is roughly one iota the cost of your sofa, carpet, or shirt — $7.99 from Cutler’s in Petoskey, in fact — that works better than any salt, baking soda, or peroxide attempt we’ve ever tried (and we’ve tried many), and yet is pH neutral, contains no chlorine or phosphate, and is “100 biodegradable Surfectant Safe for colorfast washable fabrics.” But don’t take it from them or us: Wired Magazine called the stuff “unequivocally” and “indisputably” the best product for removing red wine stains. Conveniently, a single bottle fits perfectly into a Christmas stocking. Cutlersonline.com
