.The Solution To Red Wine & Coffee Stain Removal

CAPSULE REPORT: This week’s top pick isn’t a food, but a way to remove food stains—more specifically, wine and coffee stains.

There are a number of specialty stain removal products on the market. We haven’t tried them all, but some have worked for us and some haven’t.

Flooding the stain with club soda and blotting it can work if you do it quickly, while the stain is still wet. If  you wait until the morning after the dinner—or months after—don’t count on it.

When we first received samples of WineOFF and CoffeeOFF, we were a bit skeptical until we put them through their paces. It amazed us that, two weeks after heavily staining pure white linen napkins and leaving them in the sun, CoffeeOFF and WineOFF did their jobs.

The “secret” is a combination of enzymes along with friendly bacteria that actually eat the staining foods. While a Tide pen is more convenient to stick in your pocket when dining out, we’re keeping these spray bottles at home to finish the job.

With an ample four-ounce bottle of each for just $9.90, no household should be without them.

These helpful sprays are:

  • Great gifts for party hosts
  • Welcome stocking stuffers for friends and family who are known for their high dry cleaning bills.

Unlike with our other Top Picks, there’s no “rest of the review” because we’ve said it all.

THE NIBBLE does not sell the foods we review
or receive fees from manufacturers for recommending them.

Our recommendations are based purely on our opinion, after tasting thousands of products each year, that they represent the best in their respective categories.
