2023 Wine and Chile Fiesta is Happening!

32 years ago, 20 restaurants and 20 wineries gathered at a mall parking lot to offer the best of their craft for locals and tourists alike. Today, this one-day event has turned into a five-day fiesta, one that unites more than double of participants and brings over 3500 guests to the city of Santa Fe, NM. Other businesses, such as house cleaning services companies have joined the fiesta, providing excellent services to vacation rental owners who receive guests during this time of the year. We call that a real success story! 

This year, from September 27 to October 1st, you can witness some of the best food and wines in Santa Fe, NM, the country and the world! There are wine seminars, rides on the Santa Fe train, chef luncheons and much more. There is education, food, drink and lots of fun… what more can you ask for? 

After five days of scrumptious food and lots of wine, stains are bound to happen. Good thing we’ve got top house cleaning experts in Santa Fe who have helped us put together some tips to get rid of wine stains. Here are a few to keep handy:

Red wine stains: 

  • If the red stain happened on white or very light-colored fabric, use this trick. In a bowl or any washable container, mix about 3 parts hydrogen peroxide and 1 part dishwashing soap, then apply directly into the red wine stain.
  • A quick and easy go-to option is to use club soda, specially if you can use it right after the wine was spilled on your clothes or tablecloth. First, blot away as much wine as possible; then, pour the club soda across the stain and let it fizz and soak for at least 10 minutes. The trick here is the carbonation, which helps dissolve the red pigments.
  • Expert house cleaning tip number 3 that is a MUST: blotting is always the first step. Try to soak as much wine as possible from garment. A clean, damp rag is recommended. To make sure the stain disappears, add some salt or baking soda on top of the wine, and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Add a bit of water and continue blotting before washing the garment. 

Red and white wine stains: 

  • Cover the stain in white vinegar, which neutralizes purple and red pigments. Immediately after applying the vinegar, rub in liquid detergent, then launder in hot water. The stain should lift. If it’s a totally stubborn one, leave the task to a house cleaning specialist and perhaps they can performa a miracle.

Champagne and white wine stains: 

  • Even if white, these types of drinks can leave stains, particularly on light-colored clothing. An easy trick is to immediately sponge the spot using a paper towel or a towel soaked in cool water. You can also soak the item of clothing in water for 20 to 30 min if possible. Then, you can simply wash the item normally, and as a safety measure, pretreat the stain with a prewash stain remover. Add some bleach if the stained item of clothing is white. 
  • Dried stains on carpets or upholstery may take a bit longer to get rid of, but this method has proven to give fantastic results for house cleaning professionals: Create a solution by mixing 1 tbsp of any liquid soap and 2 cups of warm water. Use an old toothbrush to apply the mix in and around the stain. Rinse with distilled water and blot the area with a dry, clean cloth. Allow to air-dry and avoid direct sun or light exposure.
