Mar 27th 2024

Have you ever been in one of these situations: your wine isn't cold enough, you don't have a wine opener, or you spill wine on your favorite shirt, and you just aren't sure what to do? Well, then, you have come to the right place because we're about to share all the last-minute fixes you wish you had in the past!

DIY Wine Opener

Unfortunately, we've all been in this situation; whether you're on vacation, at your friend's house who doesn't drink wine, or forgot your opener at home, this quick DIY wine opener will save the day! This is a simple tool everyone will have on them: a key! Push your key into the middle of your wine bottle, grab a towel or the thick side of your shirt, and push down! Once you've pushed down as far as you can, twist the key counterclockwise and pull the key towards you until the cork is free. With this hack, you'll never have to worry about forgetting your wine opener at home because you have a backup plan! If you want a wine opener you can keep on you, head to our website to get our HWSD Wine Opener.

Creative Ideas to Quickly Chill Your Wine

Nothing is more disappointing than drinking warm wine! If you're looking for quick ways to chill your wine on the fly, keep reading. The first way is to wet a kitchen towel, wrap it around the wine bottle, and stick it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes. The chill from the refrigerator and wet towel will quickly chill your wine so that you can enjoy it faster!

If you're having a party and want an eye-catching wine chiller that everyone will notice, then you have to make a DIY one! It consists of five items: a bucket, cylinder tupperware, coins or rocks for weighing down, fruit or any other filling, and water! First, you'll fill the bucket halfway with water, fill the tupperware with either coins or rocks to hold it down and place it in the bucket, then dump in your fruit and place it in the freezer overnight! In the morning, you'll wake up to a beautiful, unique wine chiller that both you and your guests will love!

Another way you can chill your wine in style is to add creative ice cubes! Grapes are a perfect alternative to ice cubes because they keep your wine from watering down! If you don't have any grapes, you can freeze cubes of wine to keep your drink colder longer.

How to Remove a Red Wine Stain

Have you ever been drinking a glass of your favorite red wine when suddenly you bump into someone or lose your grip? Next thing you know you have a big red stain on the front of your favorite shirt! If you let this stain dry, it's tough to get out! Right after you spill the wine, you need to blot the stain with a paper towel. Next, grab a bottle of table salt and fully cover the stain, then let it sit for an hour. Once the hour has passed, dab the stain with a rag drenched in hot water, and then throw it in the washer. Once you've taken these steps, continue loving your favorite shirt and stay stain-free!
