When dealing with the aftermath of a wine spill, the trick is to wet the stained area with cool water, then gently rub with a pea-size amount of whitening toothpaste before rinsing.  Wine contains tannins, and so are coffee, tea and berry juices.  These are acidic compounds that mat fabric with yellow-brown stains.  The toothpaste’s sodium bicarbonate will loosen the stain and help neutralize the acids, while the peroxide’s mild bleaching action will gently remove the discoloration.
