Combine good food and drink with a roomful of guests, excited children and a pet or two and there are bound to be a few mishaps. Just in time for preparation for the holiday season, Consumer Reports offers tips on cleaning up household “goofs,” like removing lipstick from cloth napkins and wine on carpet and fabric.

The advice is based on laboratory testing, professional expertise and years of cleaning up in the magazine’s labs. • Oops: Spills on carpet or fabric. For wine: First blot with water. Next use a detergent solution of 1 teaspoon of a mild clear or white dishwashing liquid – no bleach – in 1 cup of warm water. For red wine, you can then dab with 3 percent-strength hydrogen peroxide. For soda: Blot with the detergent solution, then use a vinegar solution of one-third cup of white vinegar with two-thirds cup of water. Rinse with warm water. If a trace remains, dab with 3 percent-strength hydrogen peroxide.
• Oops: White ring marks on wood. Blot with an absorbent cloth, wipe with a damp cloth to help dissolve the stain, and dry with a soft cloth. If the stain remains, apply a little non-gel toothpaste, or liquid or cream car polish, rubbing with the grain. Wipe with a dry cloth and polish, if needed.
