Step 1

Prepare water and cleaning chemicals to remove the orange soda stains from your clothing. Mix 1/2 tsp. of dish soap and 1 tbsp. of white vinegar in a sink full of warm water.

Step 2

Soak your clothes in the water for 15 minutes. Rinse the clothing well and let it air dry.


Step 3

Remove an orange soda stain from the carpet. Add three drops of white vinegar to a small bucket of cold water. Dip a sponge into the bucket of water and vinegar. Squeeze it out and add some wet spotter.


Step 4

Rub the sponge onto the stain in a circular motion. Start from the center of the stain and work outward. Let the chemicals sit for at least five minutes. Wet another sponge with cold water and wipe over the stain.


Step 5

Use carpet stain remover for dried orange soda stains on your carpet. Use the water, white vinegar and wet spotter mix before using the carpet stain remover. Then, scrub the carpet stain remover on the stain with a brush. Let it sit for the recommended time, then wipe it down with a wet sponge.


Mix your own wet spotter with one part glycerine, one part white dishwashing soap and water. Store it in a spray bottle and use on carpets only.
