Getting Out Food Stains:
Did you ever hear that a great thing for getting out red wine stains is white wine? Pour white wine on the affected area and soak up. Then wash in cold water and ammonia. How about White wine? Wash in cold water and ammonia.

Here are some other tips...

How about Soft Drinks? Pre-treat dry fabric with a laundry pre-soak (spot stain remover) prior to washing with a quality laundry product in the usual way. Alternative treatment: sponge with equal quantities of methylated spirits (wood alcohol) and water. Old or obstinate stains may be softened in glycerine before treatment as above.

And here's a fixer for Coffee & Tea: Remove fresh stains from cotton and linen materials by first rinsing in warm water then pouring boiling water from a height of 2 to 3 feet onto the stain. Follow by washing in soapy water. Tea stains on cottons and linens can also be removed by soaking in borax and water (1 Tablespoon borax in 1 cup of warm water).

Stains on wool and silk or any fabric may be sponged with lukewarm water, then apply glycerine, rubbing lightly between the hands. Let stand for half an hour. Rinse with warm water. If a grease spot remains from cream, sponge with dry cleaning fluid.
