Worst-Case Wednesday: How to Survive a Wine Spill Emergency

You’re on that important date, right? You wanna impress, but in the middle of discussing Emily Brontë, you spill red wine. All. Over. Yourself. The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Dating and Sex shows you how to survive a fashion emergency.

Wine Stain

  • For white wine, wet a cloth napkin with cold water and dab the stain. Avoid hot water, which will set the stain.
  • For red wine, soak a cloth napkin with white wine and apply to the stain area. Then dab the stain with cool water.
  • Rub toothpaste–the white, pasty kind only–onto the stain to make it easier to clean later.
  • If you spilled the wine on your date, apologize, offer to pay the dry cleaning bill, and immediately pour or order another glass of wine.
