Remove Champagne Stains Caused By New Year Celebrations

With New Year’s Eve being only one day away, you may be getting ready to pop bottles of sparkling bubbly. And while a toast to times ahead is a great way to celebrate, it’s also sometimes the culprit of a seriously sticky mess. Luckily, Good Housekeeping found an easy way to remove champagne stains.

First, combine warm water and mild liquid dish soap in a bowl. Then, dip a cloth into the solution and dab the stain. Finally, rinse the spot with warm water.

We’re totally grateful to have a quick solution to this very common New Year’s blunder because let’s face it, no one wants to bring in 2013 with a big ol’ stain!
