How to Remove Orange Soda Stains

Orange soda may have a great taste but certainly it doesn’t look so great on a carpet or an article of clothing. Spilled orange soda can leave an unsightly stain which may remain forever if not treated properly. One way to ensure that the stain will be completely removed is by tackling it immediately when it happens. Although, orange soda stains can be difficult to remove, there are a few tricks that can help effectively get rid of these stains before they become permanent.
Clothes

  1. Fill your bathroom sink with warm water, then add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and ½ teaspoon of dish soap to the water. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Put the stained clothes into the water with the vinegar and dish soap to soak for about half an hour, as recommended by cleaners Rotherhithe.
  3. Rinse the garments and hang them out in sun to air dry.

Carpets

  1. To remove orange soda stains from carpets, make a solution of 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 3 cups of cold water. Use a small bucket to mix the ingredients, then dip a sponge into the mixture and squeeze out the excess liquid.
  2. Gently rub the stain with the sponge by working in circular motion starting from the middle of the stain going outwards. Allow the solution to soak into the carpet for at least five minutes, then use another sponge dampened in plain cold water to rinse the area.
  3. For dried orange soda stains, consider using commercial stain remover. However, try to remove the stain first with the vinegar solution and if it remains, just then go for the stain remover. Apply the commercial product according the instructions on its label and leave it to sit for the recommended time. Use a wet sponge to lift the solution along with the stain by blotting.

According to cleaners Rosehill, it would be a good idea to test any cleaning solution on a small hidden area first to make sure that it won’t cause more bad than good.
