How to remove wine stains from a white wall

The splash:It so happened that I bought a bottle of wine while in Germany and did not have a bottle opener.So instead of pulling the cork out I tried to push it in.I now know that it was a stupid thing to do. The are other proven ways of opening a wine bottle without a wine opener.Please check them here.Due to the pressure inside the bottle the wine splashed into my face and sadly to the surrounding white wall and the roof.

How to remove the stains:The first thought was to wash it out with water.But  it didn’t help. Although the stains became a little lighter in color it was still visible.So the next step was to bleach it out. So I bought bleach (Heitmann wasche weiss ) from REWE. This is a very light bleach (15 – 30 %). Hence I added 3 parts of water to one part of bleach and kept the solution for some time.Then I dampened a clean white cloth with this solution and gently wiped the stains off.The stains went off.
