How To Remove Cola & Soft Drinks From Carpet


Spilled Cola


To clean cola and soft drinks from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

Synthetic Carpet

1.  Soak the area liberally with warm water (not hot).  Blot dry with paper towels.  Re-soak and re-dry area until the cola has been removed from the carpet.

2.  Use a detergent solution by mixing one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid with one cup of warm water.  Make sure the water is not hot.


Like coffee, cola on carpet is one of the most common spills we hear about.  There is one very simple way to not ever have to deal with this spill again.  Not only will your carpet be cleaner, you'll be a healthier, happier person.

So how do you keep your carpet as well as your insides cleaner?  Drum roll please... STOP DRINKING COLA!  You don't need the caffeine or the sugar.  There are nearly 10 teaspoons of sugar in a typical single can of cola.  All this sugar can turn the blood acidic, which reduces the amount of calcium your body retains, which in turn can lead to osteoporosis.

Cola is so corrosive that people have used it to clean rust and other stains from the inside of their toilets.  Do you really want this stuff inside of you?  Yuck!
