It’s the curse of the white fabric.

Sadly, it’s not just limited to shirts either; we must be cautioned around all white fabrics. The latest victim, my friend’s brand new pristine white linen couch, yikes is right. Nothing puts a halt on the red wine and dining fun like a spilt drink.
Sweet red wines taste the best, but sadly stain the worst. If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation as my dear friend, follow these expert tips because there is a chance to save your couches life.
