Red Wine

Dab with club soda, then cover with salt and let it sit overnight.

If you're out at a restaurant, put salt over the stain immediately and let it sit. This will quickly/immediately absorb the stain. Allow about 10 minutes to let the salt seat. I learned this on my engagement trip with my husband in Paris at Cafe de Flores.
