Does anyone know alternative uses for wine other than food related? I have about 2 gallons of homemade wine that was left by a previous house owner.
My neighbor worked for Gallo winery and said they used wine to clean the cement floor daily. I have heard that Thunderbird wine it is good for garage floors also with grease spills. I haven't tried it but what have you got to lose?
What about contacting the old owner. Maybe he would like it back or a neighbor that knew him would like to have it.
Let it sit long enough and it will turn to vinegar, it may be already. It can be used as a household cleaner where ever vinegar would be used normally, one caution, if it's red, don't use it where it will stain.C
If it is white wine it is great for getting red wine, grape juice, etc out of carpets...just pour it on and the stains disappear
If it's a colored wine - it's great for dying (staining) fabrics. I used a deep red wine to color some muslin and made some great looking curtains!
If you have fruit flies in your house, set an open bottle of wine on the counter. They will fly in but can't fly out and will drown.

What can I do with leftover red wine?
Make a pan sauce for red meat with it. Or make a beef stew and use it to deglaze the pan.
Wine may go 'bad' to the taste but is still very good to use in cooking many things.
You can even mix 2 different reds in a container to save for later use.
Now if you want a nifty way to save wine after opened you need to try this.
Put in an ice cube tray and freeze it.
Red Wine is great for a lot of things, starting with it is Heart healthy when having a single glass. Lets not forget so many great recipes, like Chocolate Ganache glaze, Beef braising sauce, red wine vinegar, Marinades, and a great fruit fly trap , by mixing red wine and dish soap draws the fruit flies in ,when mixing together in a dish.
If you have a blouse with a stain, you may want to soak it in the wine to dye it! I have done this with coffee and tea. All turned out beautiful!
