Fluid: Good to the Last Drop

December 2, 2010

Someone once taught me the following useful wine trick:

When you reach the very end of a bottle – nothing left to pour- turn it on its side for a few minutes. You will find that a tiny bit of wine will collect inside, and you’ll be rewarded with a few more drops to finish off your evening.

Note: If you put this trick into practice at a restaurant, the wait staff will most likely scurry to your table with alarmed looks on their faces. What are those people doing? Are they making a mess? Is that some kind of signal I don’t know about that means they want the check?

Reassure them that no, you aren’t spilling things on their tablecloth or sending them a cryptic message. You just really like wine.

    Great wine tip Kate! Another good one is for wine stain removal. If you happen to spill a glass of red wine on white carpet, you can easily remove it with a solution consisting of equal parts hydrogen peroxide and Dawn dish soap. The peroxide is a bleaching agent, so it shouldn’t be used on colored fabrics.
