Soft Drink Stain Information

Soft drinks cause stains that can be colorless, yellowish, reddish, brownish and that darken with age. They contain tannin, sugar, vegetable coloring, flavoring and fruit extracts.

Cleaning Ingredients

  • AMMONIA 1 Tbsp. clear household ammonia in 1/2 cup water. Always pre-test.
    CAUTION: Ammonia will "set", that is make permanent, stains on natural fibers like wool and silk but may help in stain removal from other types of fibers.
  • DETERGENT 1-2 drops colorless, mild detergent or dish washing liquid in 1 cup lukewarm water.
  • ENZYME DETERGENT Mix enzyme detergent per instructions on package and allow to remain on stain recommended time. Do not over wet.
    CAUTION: Enzymes can damage natural fibers like wool. Use with care or call us.
  • WHITE VINEGAR 1/3 cup white household vinegar in 2/3 cup water.


  1. Apply cold detergent solution, blot.

  2. Apply ammonia solution, blot.

  3. Apply vinegar solution, blot.

  4. Apply pressure to the spot with a spatula or the back of a tablespoon to work spotting solution deep into spot. DO NOT SCRUB as this may cause nap distortion of the fiber.

  5. Rinse with water, blot until dry.

(Dry cleaning solvent contains volatile organic compound. Use carefully in strict accordance with manufacturers' instructions. Use in well ventilated space and avoid products containing Perchlorethylene.)
