Treating a Red Wine Stain

After purchasing new furniture, are you hesitant to invite your red wine-loving friends over? Totally understandable, furniture can be expensive! But it’s meant to be lived on, which is why we have created some of the best performance fabrics on the market. Summer Classics outdoor furniture has its own line of Sunbrella fabrics that are red wine approved! We don’t suggest letting them sit for too long though. As with any fabric, red wine will stain fibers the longer they are left untreated. Also, allowing heat to apply to the stain could expedite this process. So, it’s best to act calmly, yet quickly when removing red wine stains from any surface.
